Is it magic? Is it physics? Bethany is looking at the first written instance of kids playing the classic sleepover game, “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board.” (Play it with your colleagues as a team-building exercise!) Then, Kathleen’s Thanksgiving dinner plans are driving straight into Potato Bar Town, population: all potatoes. She looks at the history of our subterranean spud friend and plans out an array of potato options that would make any starch-lover weep with joy. Plus, NASA has come up with a list of rules so everyone plays nicely… on the moon?
