Interesting quiz. I only got 21 but that was enough to put me in the 94th percentile. Too bad that the prize used to mean something.. and then it basically became a big joke when they gave one to terrorist Yasser Arafat. As if to drive home the point of their descent into self-parody, then they decided to hand out awards to Al Gore (for making a movie that had nothing to do with peace), Barack Obama (for being elected), and the European Union (for.... ???? ) in less than a decade.

oh and I forgot them notoriously giving the award one year to carpet-bombing Kissinger, and his counterpart in the VietCong.

Arafat won it jointly with Rabin, another avowed terrorist, so it's swings and roundabouts really...

Kissinger is the worse offender, IMO. Absolutely no justification for this one. I can see the reasoning between Arafat and Rabin, but they should not have won it. And giving it to Obama was just ridiculous.

The EU is justifiable, I'm sure. They certainly work for peace and have been able to maintain it within their borders. But surely there were/are much better candidates.

The peace and literature Nobel prizes are becoming more and more a joke. They are being given to completely undeserving recipients, and it's more about politics than actual merits.

They hand out a prize money of about 1.5 million US-Dollars. What are the EU or Obama gonna do with that? Seems more reasonable to give the money to individuals or organizations that need it to continue their work.

So Gandhi was never awarded the Peace Prize - incredible. Especially when you consider one or two war-makers who did receive it.

I didn't come up with many and the only way I came up with what I did was thinking of the most useless and/or undeserving names since the awards inception. The only award (not in the entertainment business) that is given out to the most worthless of people/organizations.

1997: The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with its international coordinator, Jody Williams. The ICBL is missing from the list. Also: The "Institute of International Law" should be acceptable, not just its French translation. And the International Peace Bureau is often called simply "the Bureau". Thanks!
