What the Reindeer Saw

Malcolm Gladwell explains Christmas, as imagined by Craig Brown for Vanity Fair: “In a hugely influential 2004 experiment at the University of Colorado at Bollocks Falls, Professor Sanjiv Sanjive and his team asked 323 volunteers to wrap themselves in swaddling clothes and spend the night in a stable, lying in a manger. Logic would dictate that at least one of them would be visited by shepherds, wise men, or kings from the East, right?” In real life, Gladwell has a good talk with Charlie Rose. [%comments]
