The utter hypocrisy of these Nobel prizes on view again. Just look at the batteries, folks. Don't turn your head. Nothing else to see here. Think of the benefits to mankind... Whatever you do, don't worry your stupid little heads about Coltan. The irony that this is the legacy of Alfred Nobel is breathtaking. I'm not even going to explain the background to this. Merely color me disgusted and Google "Coltan" if you are interested. I suspect the MSM won't give a flying feck as usual. What a joke.
