So, the other day, following my girlfriend around town like a zombie while she was shopping for shoes, I got a free tie voucher, and just for fun I went to whatever shop and traded it for a free silk tie.
Today I tried tying the damn thing, just for fun. Oh my what a mistake that was.
. It's been a while since I've been that close to smashing up things. I mean, it seems physically, mathematically and logically IMPOSSIBLE to do.
I've googled around, looked at arcane drawings, and even got a mind-numbing video link
from srikat in the donationcoder IRC channel.
About the most sane explanation was one of my friends, who wrote "You take a möbius strip and fold the ends according to Heissenberg's equations, until you have an abstract plane, which you can then put around your neck"
Argh. Good thing I'm not a corporate slave yet.
