    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.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    detective, we're missing something. Firstly, whatever figure you've drawn in the OP is not translating well. Additionally, we cannot figure out the implications of what the arrangement means.

    Recently wrote the appropriate politicians that the NIMBYisms objecting to nuclear power do not apply to me. Thorium. Breeder.

    so, you need to "change"?
