Our authority is Isaiah , "Moreover, the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days." Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much radiation as we do from the Sun, and in addition 7*7 (49) times as much as the Earth does from the Sun, or 50 times in all.
The light we receive from the Moon is one 1/10,000 of the light we receive from the Sun, so we can ignore that ...
On land, conventional reindeer can pull no more than 300 pounds.
Even granting that "flying reindeer" (see point #1) could pull TEN TIMES the normal anoint, we cannot do the job with eight, or even nine. This increases the payload - not even counting the weight of the sleigh - to 353,430 tons.
In one example students are reported to have been asked ‘What is courage?
’ One is said to have returned a blank page saying ‘This is.’ When hell freezes over: The question of whether hell is endothermic (absorbs heat) or exothermic (gives off heat) is one of the better known exam test legends.The student is widely reported to have been Niels Bohr, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics.This answer is thought to be one of a number he came up with.Instead of returning the normal answer that they would measure the pressure at the top and bottom of the building to work this out, one student said he would tie a length of string to the barometer and lower it from the top.The answer is seen as factually correct, but not displaying scientific theory.4) The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element.Assuming that each child gets nothing more than a medium-sized lego set (2 pounds), the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa, who is invariably described as overweight.3) Santa has 31 hours of Christmas to work with, thanks to the different time zones and the rotation of the earth, assuming he travels east to west(which seems logical). This is to say that for each Christian household with good children, Santa has 1/1000th of a second to park, hop out of the sleigh, jump down the chimney, fill the stockings, distribute the remaining presents under the tree, eat whatever snacks have been left, get back up the chimney, get back into the sleigh and move on to the next house.Assuming that each of these 91.8 million stops are evenly distributed around the earth (which, of course, we know to be false but for the purposes of our calculations we will accept), we are now talking about .78 miles per household, a total trip of 75-1/2 million miles, not counting stops to do what most of us must do at least once every 31 hours, plus feeding and etc.While most students answered with theories about Boyle’s law and gas cooling when it expands and heating when compressed, one student wrote an answer saying first they needed to determine whether the mass of Hell was increasing or decreasing.He then concluded there were two possibilities: “1.
