Quadrennial/calculate

My favorite part of my village’s quadrennial math competition is the event in which teams attempt to calculate the approximate distance between the earth and the sun by firing potatoes out of a canon towards the sky and seeing if/to what degree they are baked once they fall back to the ground.
-Gladys Potter

We always obey the time-honored tradition of the quadrennial sacrifice to Lord Dolphin, executive savior and righteous patron of our city, and we especially always calculate our supply of M+Ms to ensure there are enough for his satisfaction.
