"On the 27th of January, 1887, a snowflake apparently fell in Montana, and it was 57cm (22.4in) across ...but they have no proof of that."

In SnowFlakeology from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 131, PK co-founder Mark Dytham drops some cold hard science on frozen crystals falling from the sky. Whether elaborating on 2-dimensional radiating dendrites crystals, or 3-dimensional Gohei-twin type flakes, or digital ASCII/Unicode icy forms, it's crystal-clear he's done his homework. Simply put, Mark's extensive snowflake knowledge is...well...chilling.

...he definitely didn't flake on this PechaKucha! It snow joke!

Bob's Sleigh

@ 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!"

PechaKucha co-founder and half of the dynamic duo that makes up Klein Dytham architecture, Mark Dytham delivers his annual holiday season presentation in 20x20 fashion. Past years' topics have included "Snowflake-ology", Un-average Sleighs, Ski-Jumps of the World, "Yuletide Shrubbery" (read: Christmas Trees) and more. This year at PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 142, he takes on "Bob's Sleigh" and the fascinating and little known world of bobsledding, elucidating on the sport's rich history, the technical intricacies of track and sleigh, and some of the sport's best stories. Question Mark: Who's Bob? (Hint: Watch and find out!)

Merry Christmas!

We hope that you are all having a truly Merry Christmas, and if you're in need of some extra festive inspiration, why not take a look at the "Presentation of the Day," which is by none other than PechaKucha co-founder Mark Dytham, and offers up a look at some rather unconvential sleighs for Santa -- it was recorded at last week's PKN Vol. 98 here in Tokyo. For even more Christmas cheer, you can learn everything there is to know about Christmas Baubles, courtesy of PechaKucha co-founder Astrid Klein (also recorded at the same PKN).
