why are mini m&ms so much better than normal m&ms 

because there’s this thing called the square-cube law (x) which basically says that as volume decreases, so does the surface area, but not as quickly (by the square of the scaling factor, instead of by the cube), which means that smaller m&ms have a higher candy:chocolate ratio than normal ones

i was gonna call u a nerd… but.. thats actually….kinda…interesting

science:

In-ear headphones were patented all the way back in 1891, when French engineer Ernest Mercadier invented his “bi-telephone”:
After extensive testing and optimization of telephone receivers, Mercadier was able to produce miniature receivers that weighed less than 1 3/4 ounces and were “adapted for insertion into the ear.” His design is an incredible feat of miniaturization and is remarkably similar to contemporary earbud headphones, down to the use of a rubber cover “to lessen the friction against the orifice of the ear… effectually close the ear to external sounds.”
Surely there’s a hip kickstarter waiting to happen in there somewhere.
