Bent Spoon nominations for 2017
The nominations for the 2017 Australian Skeptics’ Bent Spoon award have been published, featuring an array of potential winners and dis-honourees.
The Spoon is awarded to the most preposterous piece of paranormal or pseudoscientific piffle of the year, and is one of the least sought-after awards on the woo calendar. Past winners include Paleo Pete Evans, Homeopathy Plus, the Lutec free energy generator, a whole range of universities, and a psychic dentist.
