For those readers in the States and Canada (and elsewhere?) who get the History channel, tomorrow, Tuesday 23 December, is The Big Day.
For Mark and Mark, the season begins at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center, where NASA with NORAD air support, tracks Santa’s gift-delivery mission. How does he do it in one night? A math and weather wiz at NYC’s Cornell University helps crunch the numbers.
I’m the “wiz”. My four minutes of fame comes near the end of the show, so you have plenty of time to pop some corn before my big moment.
If you like to hear statisticians babble, then this is the show for you! To all my friends in India and China, I can only apologize—I had no idea what I was saying.
It will be obvious that this was my on-camera debut: you won’t again see anybody else as stiff as me, except maybe that Bob guy from Enzyte.
I’ll only take credit for one thing: when you see Mark & Mark swatting away a swarm of white equations, know that I made those. Using Latex, of course.
