It’s not over yet, we’re just cresting the hill of extra content. Think of the next week as the second disc of your Fight Club DVD where you can watch the film an additional four different ways with commentary by everyone involved in the film, including the set designer. If anyone is interested in guest commenting on these sweaters, please to put them in the comments, I’ll add them to the post.
Christmas Sweater #26, one of the sweaters rented by Terry Seufert of Houston Goodwill (@houstongoodwill) is all about science, including double helices, hearts and what I’m sure is the quarternary binding structure of rhodopsin. It is also a calm meditation on what happens when you take three or four other sweaters, cut them up and put them back together incorrectly.
Goodwill’s Employment Programs
Goodwill offers several employment programs for the Houston citizens they service. The first is through their Contract Services Division, the second is part of their Vocational Rehabilitational Services.
