      I’d be pretty baffled for a while first, then I’d tell my family and my supervisors. Then I’d probably ring up the minister for science and tell him to put more money into science funding (as I’d now have a fancy award that he might respect)

      hi 374bera39,
      That’s something beyond my imagination right now..You know the noble prize amount for 2014 was 8 million SEK per full Nobel Prize which means if I will get one I will invite you to opening ceremony of a school for minor section students in developing countries. 🙂

      I’d have a rip-roaring party. Then the following morning I’d try and figure out how I’d won it? I’d have plenty help spending the prize money. How about you give me a vote so I can get practicing at being a prize winning scientist ! 🙂 can’t blame me for trying.
