    Poincare said that mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things. I think Nobel prizes do just the same. How on earth can you put on the same level and give the same prize to someone that discovers that, say, neutrinos have mass and someone that writes a novel (and in the eyes of some beholders that novel could be nice)? With all due respect, when you, a literature/peace Nobel laureate, sit at the same table with science Nobel laureates, all you can do is ask questions and listen to their answers. To make the perfect confusion, Nobel committee can create a new prize: the Nobel for the best football player.
