The eclipse. Just my suggestion. Skip the glasses. Have lunch under an oak or maple tree and marvel at all the little crescents dancing on the ground. I might go nuts and lay a white blanket out but that’s about it. The effect might even be better under an oak chewed up by gypsy moths.
But don’t forget one thing. It is STEM that allows you to do this unconcerned that the sun might not come back. Science, Technology, Engineering , and Math. A lot of math.
Without STEM the dragon eats the sun and you must sacrifice a virgin to get the sun back. And around here we might be a little short on … nevermind.
