Wait a second! That initial “V” isn’t short for Vi
by any chance? As in Viola DeRama, the millionaire heiress who thinks
she is a scientist and sees villainy
around every corner?
One and the same, I believe.
Who on earth is Viola DeRama?
Where have you been, Mr. Fischer? Last year Ms. DeRama watched Old Faithful
Geyser erupt, then set a stop watch for one hour later.
When the geyser failed to go off at the sound of her alarm, she called
a press conference, reporting that foul play had occurred and Old Faithful
was in trouble. If Viola had thought to check her information, she would
have learned that, despite the myth, Old Faithful has never erupted at
exact hourly intervals. The period of time between eruptions ranges from
45 to 120 minutes, though the average is 92 minutes.
