@ VOL 142 ON DEC 14, 2016

"Bobsleighs can get up to speeds of 160 kilometers per hour, and going around one of the tight curves, can get up to 5G's just like in a fighter jet!"

Past years' topics have included "Snowflake-ology", Un-average Sleighs, Ski-Jumps of the World, "Yuletide Shrubbery" (read: Christmas Trees) and more.

Question Mark: Who's Bob? (Hint: Watch and find out!)
