Abstract:

No prior Math (or travel) experience is needed for the talk. Have you ever wondered if the earth is doughnut-shaped? Ever wanted to a ride in a bus, drinking Pina Coladas, as you tour the universe? Ever felt that your wallet was making your pants sag? ....If so this talk is for you!!! Acclaimed travel expert Mel Slugbate (Colin Adams of Williams College) will share his accumulated wisdom on travel, and mention a few reasonably priced tours of the universe. He will answer such questions as: "How can you tell what surface you are living on? "When is it safe to eat something that is moving?" "Is the universe infinite in extent, and if so, is the tour round-trip?". Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
