My experiments with "pyramid power" in the 70s and early 80s were seriously mind-blowing. I don't know how, to this day, to explain how an open, pyramid-shaped frame (built to the precise angles of the Great Pyramid in Egypt) kept bits of food (bacon, an orange slice, a glass of milk, among others) from putrefying, while the same food — placed a few inches away outside of the pyramid — completely molded and rotted.
I documented my experiments in a 7th-grade science fair project titled "Do Pyramids Affect Decomposition?" After winning my junior high school fair, I took the project to the Maryland State Science Fair. I'll never forget the back-and-forth as several perplexed organizers tried to put my project in the appropriate section — was it biology? Physics? Chemistry? I can't remember where the eventually stuck me, but I'm proud to say I've stayed in that weird little ghetto of the scientifically unclassifiable ever since.
And finally, the text to my science experiment (unfortunately in ALL CAPS and single-spaced).
