Links from my expatriate e-mail pen pal Jack and his friend Marty.
How the Big Bird suit worked
How ice cream cones are made
How a beanstalk grows
How Wi-Fi is distributed inside an apartment
How camouflage gets on a helmet
Why Michael Jackson was able to defy gravity
What dogs do when they drink water
How coins get sorted inside a machine ;
The way braces change your teeth ;
How a trumpet makes that beautiful music ;
The way pretzels are tied en masse ;
How peanut butter jars are filled full of creamy goodness ;
What actually happens when you put a key in a door ;
How exactly all that stuff gets into a Pop-Tart ;
What it looks like when you swallow ;
How hay bales get wrapped ;
How water affects light ;
How paper clips turn into paper clips ;
The life of a dandelion ;
How flight patterns change throughout the day ;
And how terrifying the human face is when it’s forming in the womb
