An English In Kentucky

    Triangles are a most awkward and difficult shape.  When we had our chance we should have said "No."  But they went ahead and built pyramids so other creatures, both visible and invisible, could see how important it was not to mess with us.

      Instead of conceptualizing the infinite straight line as a point we decided to give it an ending place by calling it an arc of a circle.  Frankly it has been downhill ever since. But it's far too easy to blame Euclid, who probably just wanted to work in the shade.
