Freestyle Friday: A Roundup Stuff for 12-21-2018

Welcome to Freestyle Friday, where I post a semi-random roundup of stuff, much of which I find cool, interesting, noteworthy or even appalling. Today we start with some free books from my publisher, Creativia.

Free books!

This week’s science:

In other words, Santa’s a Martian. I see the perfect mash-up movie now… Tom Hanks voices the Conductor in Martian Express: Houston, We Have A Winter Wonderland.

Somehow I feel like this is the President’s Mommy saying, “No, you can’t have any Wall. Eat your Science or you go to bed hungry.” Ha, I wish.
