    OK, (though I HOPE it won't be the most interesting event of your life. I lied...)

    Take 6 pennies or any 6 coins the same and put them on table in an inverted "V" : you'll have one straight line with 4 coins intersecting another straight line of 3 coins. Like this (ignore he dots)

    So far I'm not seeing the excitement... Is this one of those "you have to experience it for yourself" deals?

    Sorry, I'll be quiet while you finish.

    OK, it used to look like an inverted V.
