Double Rainbow


My Mom used to tell me that a rainbow was God's way of telling us his promise to never flood the earth again like he did with Noah.
.
But what Mom forgot to tell me is that a double rainbow is a double reflection of sunlight inside the raindrops, and appear at an angle of 50°–53°. As a result of the second reflection, the colours of a secondary rainbow are inverted compared to the primary bow, with blue on the outside and red on the inside.

Maybe he has writers block. Let's suggest some topics. I would like to see, among other things, more photos of the cafeteria, and update on the complimentary fruit policy, a list of available free beverages, tips on chicken farming and information on the current state of Star Trek in the work place.
