A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths. So, there I was, walking my dog on a ledge the other day...

Practically speaking, wouldn't cutting corners increase the number of edges?


Ok_Secretary_8243 t1_j1cgno7 wrote

Cutting it so that it’s in the shape of a circle.


WolfHunter17 t1_j1dcptk wrote

A circle is just a bunch of edges very closely together

A circle is the limit of a regular n-gon as n approaches infinity.


WolfHunter17 t1_j1dgoeh wrote

Precisely what I said :p


TrixicAcePolyamEnby t1_j1dhbpx wrote

It's not. "A bunch" implies a finite number. Any n-gon with a finite number of edges is not a circle.

Woah, do tell me more!

I teach college math, my guy. I'm just trying to educate here. You had the right idea, but the wording was problematic and incomplete.


WolfHunter17 t1_j1dmo5m wrote

While I appreciate the concern, I feel like this was not really the place to do it, my guy/gal/enby. Taking aside the fact that the wording was quite fine considering we're speaking here of a physical approximation of a circle and not the mathematical concept of one, we are on /r/jokes. Not really the place to be pedantic about stuff like this.

Once your fear is gone, you’ll be full circle again.

Maybe you should round up?

Sounds like another one i heard:

I have a phobia of elevators, I now take steps to avoid them. But even stairs make me nervous, cause they're always up to something.

Don't be so negative! Stairs can definitely be down to some fun stuff!
