After reading the article on the shrinking Hoyt tunnel, I had to recheck the date to make sure it wasn’t an April Fools piece. I loved it!
There is, however, at least one problem with the analysis. At some point, say, 800 years from now, the tunnel will be too narrow for a student to fit in there with paint in hand. Thus the narrowing will slow and perhaps end altogether – unless they decide to run a river of paint through it.
Which reminds me of some of the grafitti back in the ’70s when I was there: “I’ve known rivers.”
