Correction: Leslie mentions at one point that “heat tends to rise”. While we recognise that this is technically incorrect (heat radiates in all directions, while warmer air tends to rise above cooler air due to its lower relative density), this error did not strike us as sufficiently important to spend a lot of time fixing it in post.
