Research Demonstrating How to Effectively Collect Whale Snot/Boogers

No kidding... There was a paper that came out describing how to collect whale snot using a remote controlled helicopter.

BTW... this research was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize in Engineering 2010.

Which gives me an idea... perhaps I'll write up a paper (or even make a video) on how to effectively remove boogers/snot in humans!
