At the 19th 1st Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony at Harvard University's Sanders Theater, a 22" sword was removed from Ig Nobel Laureate sword swallower Dan Meyer's throat by Nobel Prize Laureates Dr. Martin Chalfie and Dr. Wolfgang Ketterle. Minutes later, that record was broken as an even longer sword was removed by a whole gaggle of Nobel Laureate scientists and an eminant mathematician, with some using a whip to remove it! The feat was certified a URDB World Record!
