You might consider the request to make an apple pie a simple one, but when you've seen this video, you will realize that it is not that easy. So, the other day when Nathan suggested that we make an apple pie, I suggested that we follow the directions as instructed by Carl Sagan and friends, and as a result, we needed to make the universe first. Even that was not as simple as it first appeared. I'm one of those people who refuses to read the directions first and then in the end does it wrong at least two different ways. It is only after these first two attempts that the directions even begin to make sense! Regardless of the difficulties involved, it was a delicious afternoon. Below the video is a photo of Nathan and his universe.
