Today's title goes to whoever decided to award this research grant.
British scientists have been given £1.4 million [just over US $2 million] of taxpayers' money to find out why teenagers leave their lights and TVs switched on.
The grant will go on a two-and-a-half-year research project aimed at cutting the energy consumption of children and young adults.
Part of the cash will be used to set up a website - or 'story gathering web portal' - that lets teenagers discuss their wasteful energy habits and come up ways of being more frugal.

It was awarded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council - a quango that gives more than £800 million [about US $1.16 billion] a year to universities and research institutes.
Most of its funding comes from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Dr Janet Read, who is spearheading the project at Lancashire, said: 'Teenagers often get a bad press.
'In our project we want to show that this population cares about and is interested in finding solutions to reduce energy consumption.'

I could answer that question for them. Teenagers are self-centered brats who typically don't give a damn about anything except what they want, right now. I know - I used to be one myself!
Now, can I have part of that money to reward my contribution to scientific wisdom?
