Laurie David and Scholastic have a very different definition of "fun" than I do.  Fun fact: my refrigerator needs cleaning.  Another fun fact: you're all going to die, probably in pain and quite possibly alone except for the nurse waiting for you to free up her ventilator.


Apparently this is Scholastic's alternative to the energy curriculum it pulled last week because it was sponsored by the American Coal Foundation.  I'm not sure how much of an improvement this represents.
