As noted by Ewan in a previous comment thread, Chad Orzel’s charity goal of $6,000 has been met, and that means that he’s now obliged to dance like a monkey, on video, which will then be posted on the Internet. Truly, this is the best of all possible worlds.
I want to take a moment to thank those of you who read the Whatever who donated toward Chad’s goal — not just because it’ll be fun to see him dance like a monkey, but because in doing so you’ve also helped a lot of kid learn about science by donating needed supplies to teachers and schools. Well done you, all the way around.
And Chad, if you’re reading this: Make that dance good, my friend.
