Parenting research

A British mathematician has addressed one of the most pressing problems for parents. While clearly aiming for an Ig Nobel Prize through the Annals of Improbable Research, Warwick University professor Dwight Barkley investigated the classic mathematical "Are we there yet?" question. Note that increasing the number of activities will increase the needed delay only proportionally, while increasing the number of children in the car decreases the time exponentially.

Here's to hoping for a small Horde, who could already be asking mom, well ... Are we there yet?
