Marshmallows in a Vacuum


An obit for Martin Gardner: "His was a clarifying intelligence: he said his talent was asking good questions and transmitting the answers clearly and crisply."

That's kind of what you're trying to do, isn't it?

Gardner was, of course, freer than the average CIO to indulge his fancies: "As an adult, he wrote a sequel to Baum's 'Wonderful Wizard of Oz' called 'Visitors From Oz,' in which Dorothy encounters characters from the 'Alice' books and Geraldo Rivera."

The title of this post comes from an experiment Gardner suggested, which can seen below in a video celebration of his work.
