In humble homage to the Prolate Spheroid we have decided to take a week off. No program on Sunday. OK so what is a Prolate Spheroid you ask? Well it is subtly different from an Oblate Spheriod.
According to a PhD Richard E. Barrans Jr. an oblate spheroid describes the shape of an M&M candy:
Its axis of symmetry is shorter than its other axes.
A prolate spheroid on the other hand is completely different:
its axis of symmetry is longer than its other axes
Well that should clear up any confusion.
OK, well if I was to tell you that a prolate spheroid is an oval in a 3 dimensional shape, would that help?
Sunday is the Super Bore so we have decided to watch TV and eat Chips n Dips rather than spar on the radio. I have no clue who is in the Super Bore, but I am pretty certain it is not the Saints, it has been very quiet around the house for the past few weeks. I am also fairly convinced that the San Diego Chargers are not involved. Someone would have told me!
So Mannie and I have decided that on Sunday we need to watch the Prolate Spheroid debacle.
We will be back, assuming we survive the ordeal on Sunday.
