AIR on stupidity and optimizing your wedding party

Here is a journal I’d love to publish in someday. It’s from the same folks who issue the igNobel prices. Its latest issue is a delightful exposition of the science (including economics!) of stupidity, and how a marrying couple of scientists applied mixed-integer programming to design the optimal seating plan of their wedding party. In the acknowledgements it says:

MLB gratefully acknowledges JDLP for still agreeing to marry her after writing this.

Congratulations folks.
