The Path of *Most* Resistance

Yesterday I went on a field trip with my daughter’s class to a science museum. Included in their trip were three workshops. In one they made a biosphere, in another they got electrical shocks (not kidding), and in the third they had to make…

Quaking in my Boots

>Conclusion. (it’s a little rough…)
