Maple Math

Real life learning

In Grandpa’s backyard:

4 trees + 8 taps

Yields quite a bit of sap.

A lot of sap + hours of boiling

Yields a little delicious syrup.

Homemade syrup + Grandma’s pancakes

Makes for a real treat !!

Collecting sap + making syrup

Expands a young boy’s knowledge.

Gambling With Your Life

In an era of hyper-awareness of communicable disease, it would be hard to imagine a more ideal vector for the transmission of coronavirus (or any other pathogen) than the handle of a slot machine.  Perhaps roulette or blackjack are safer bets, or maybe New York State casinos and other gaming venues should be shut down until the situation improves.  Just saying.
