Interesting. This one will require some time to ponder.
 
Einstein, tea leaves, and meandering rivers Why do reavers meander and tea leaves gather at the center when we stir? Any relation? Einstein Wikipedia page (atm) has no words "river" or "meander" in the main body. And "Not many people are aware that the renowned physicist wrote an early piece on the cause of meandering. ... discussion ... is casual, but characteristically insightful."

Einstein: "I begin with a little experiment which anybody can easily repeat. Imagine a flat-bottomed cup full of tea. At the bottom there are some tea leaves, which stay there because they are rather heavier than the liquid they have displaced. If the liquid is made to rotate by a spoon, the leaves will soon collect in the center of the bottom of the cup. The explanation of the phenomenon is as follows..." - read more at the sources ;-)

Since I did a little bashing of cube technology the other day, I suppose that I should explain why I also said that I prefer HP Vertica. Vertica Scales Using Tableau with Vertica is like peanut butter
