Nobel Betting

ChemBark proposes odds for next fall's Chemistry Nobel. Of course, a lot are really biology (prompting the usual grumbling from a small set of chemists). I would too argue along with one commenter that 'The Pill' would be more apt under Medicine (and would seem to be deserving given the impact on society).

One of those satisfying "I've really joined the fraternity" moments is when you start recognizing the names in the Nobel announcements as work you are familiar with. Of course, that doesn't mean it happens every October, but often enough that I'm still convinced I earned my stripes.
