Rings & Things

At this time of year when one of the most famous gifts of song is 'Five Golden Rings' a YouTube animation artist by the name of Roy Prohl has given us a video version of what that gift would look like if we gave it to the Earth.

The entire article about an Earth with Saturn-like rings may be read and viewed at the Scientific American website if you'd prefer to do so. I won't be totally insulted but...

By the way for those of you who wonder what that gift might cost aside from blocking part of the sky I'm sure it would be a massive layout of cash. But here on Earth with the price of gold way up this year's "12 Days" total would cost you over $84,000!

Compare that with the relatively cheap cost of 8 Days of Hanukkah. Candles aren't that expensive and depending on how much Gelt you wish to spread around you can make out like a bandit. Oy what a bargain!
