The Physics of Fax Machines

“American conservative commentator” Jonah Goldberg has a post on a blog at the nation’s leading conservative intellectural jornal, The National Review, discussing the massive amounts of paper that will be needed to send the same fax repeatedly.  Makes me wonder what they are teaching at Goucher College…

Fortunately, Evangelicals for Mitt pounced on this story and, since they are “pro-trees” decided to link to it instead. 

All of which reminds me of a bit from an ancient internet forward about someone, lacking printer paper, thinking outside the box and calling someone else so they could fax over some blank sheets.  Perhaps we all need to spend some time at howstuffworks reading up on How Fax Machines Work.
