Nobel Prize is sheer nonsense.  How can a committee pick out the best contributor to a field so large it will take forever to screen for the best?  The judges played fast and loose with their own rules in order to make their pick in time for the ceremonies.  Is there a "most beautiful woman", except as the beauty pageant judges decide?  Get another batch of judges, and another woman wins.  Therefore, logically, the choice of any one batch of judges is a kind of random variable.  In order to arrive at a true approximation of the universal "most beautiful woman", enough samples of judges must be taken and made to judge the same group of women.  A sample of one is a joke, considering that the Nobel Prize committee makes such a show of its adherence to scientific rigor and statistical rectitude.

Mathematically, the Nobel Prize is just a lousy opinion of a single batch of has-beens.

What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.

Maybe in the fields of Human Rights ?
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

The Physics, Chemistry and Medicine Nobel prizes are less based on personal opinion and much better. These are the only ones I pay attention to.
