    Text - sidereanuncia Theory: Nobody who writes a physics textbook gives any fucks Evidence: In J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (volume p. 32), Legolas the Elf claims to be able to accurately count horsemen and discern their hair color (yel low) 5 leagues away on a bright, sunny day. Make appropriate estimates and argue that Legolas must have very strange-looking eyes, have some means of nonvisual perception, or have made a lucky guess. (1 league 3.0 mi.)
