One has to wonder who would actually go around stealing a Nobel Prize in physics. A rival physicist who didn't get the award? A really smart thief? An international Nobel Prize thief who lives in the South of France and leaves a calling card whenever they steal a prize, something like "the Pink Physicist" or "Danny Nobel?" And what does one do with a stolen Nobel Prize anyways? Is there a black market out there somewhere for it?
And yes, the Lawrence in question is the Lawrence of Lawrenence Livermore Labs and a whole bunch of other ghings
