#PrincessSci: The Princess Bride gets “Scienced”

#PrincessSci was not the first effort to “science up” The Princess Bride. It will probably not be the last. After all, The Princess Bride is one of the most quotable movies of all time; and, in my humble opinion, one of the best movies ever made (no, I don’t care what the American Film Institute says).

I must say that the contributors to the #PrincessSci hashtag really brought their “A Game” to the effort, with a stand-out performance by Johnna Roose:

#casLABlanca

We took some time off from corrupting classic(ish) films with science, but we came back strong this past Friday with #casLABlanca – a noble effort to science-fy the 1942 classic Casablanca. Despite the risk this posed, I was pleased with the results (measured by my lack of productivity on Friday), but I amuse easily.
