Fermi Problem Friday

How many miles of spaghetti have you eaten in your lifetime?

  1. First my brain transposed spaghetti to angel hair, then the lyrics to Joni Mitchell's 'clouds' song came to mind. The line "Its life's illusions I recall" had me google illusions so I could try to find the rest of the lyrics. I also found a great Einstein quote: "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." Finally, I changed the words from the song, 'Both Sides Now' to make this poem. It can be sung to the same tune but only people over 50 would probably know the song.

    Miles and miles of angel hair,
    And I see chaos everywhere.
    It’s math solutions I strive for.
    And Fermi problems I adore!
