Agitated string, early Christmas, Friday

As I got into the lift after work I had my iPod in my hand and was going through the annoying ritual of untangling the earphones. There were two others in the lift and they were both untangling their earphones too.

Why are earphones so prone to tangling? I googled it and of course science has investigated, and provided its findings in a paper titled Spontaneous knotting of an agitated string. Agitated string! Maybe you have more patience than I, but I think I get more agitated than string. 

There were two parcels in the mail for me today. It was like Christmas came early. 

Friday tomorrow.  Only EIGHT working days left for the year.
