K.A.C. 2012 - T - 14 ...

     After yesterday's dose of ice water to the soul, you are to be commended for returning! To reward you (and to try and get this blog back on an even keel), we turn today to matters of science ... particularly The Science of Christmas!

     We begin our class with the formula for the Perfect Christmas Tree. Are you paying attention? I'm only going to go over this once! Scientists at Sheffield University have it all figured out, from the proper height and size to the EXACT number of decorations and lights ... and they've even got the mathematical formula written out to prove it ... go see!

     Don't put those notebooks away just yet! Not to be outdone, American scientists have gone all out with their research into the Science Behind Gifting (and Regifting) --- heck, I could tell them VOLUMES about that! Read their fascinating findings here!
