the hotel science series (cont.)

hotel science VI

an expert team of botanists
discovered today
that plastic plants are unaffected
by the change in seasons.

hotel science VII

1% of all guests
leave cell phone chargers behind.
there are no satisfactory hypotheses
to explain this strange behavior.

hotel science IIX

the trajectory of a wet pool towel,
when thrown into a basket,
is determined by the guests' desire
to throw it into a basket
or leave it on a chair for someone else
to throw into a basket.

hotel science IX

the height of 4 $1 bills
when stacked on top of one another
is greater than the height
of the slot on the snack machine
where $1 bills are typically accepted.

we learn, when placing 4 $1 bills
on top of one another
and then proceed to feed them
to the slot on the snack machine,
that this is indeed a fact.

Thank you Katy. I'm quite pleased with the results.

So, should you stop there or keep this a running series? Say you have 20 or 30 of them-- take the best 10 or 15 and submit.

Brian.

if i can pull as many as 20 or 30 out of the air, then sure, it's running. i'll even let you pick the best 10 or 15 and let you decide where they ought to be submitted, deal?

Deal.
