While I was helping my Wife cook dinner as fast as she could, she pointed to some potatoes and gave me the following instructions:
1. Peel the potatoes.
2. Cut them in half, and
3. Then cut them further so that I get six pieces out from each potato.
And I did that. Exactly. Except that my mind has some problem with step #3. Because we're rushing to cook the dinner, I had to go from Engineering mode to normal layman mode so that I can understand her instructions better. Take it from me as I have experienced this before and its the difference between the bed and the cold hard floor
Unfortunately, its hard to do that because my brain was still stuck with a design problem and so, while doing the change, my mind literally froze.
And in computer-speak, my brain 'hang'-ed. All I could think was, how to cut them into 120º pie sections as there were no protractors to measure the angles...
|And so, the first two potatoes (left) had funny shapes...|
My Wife and I kept staring at it before I realised what had happened.
Luckily... luckily she made me cut the potato in half so I did not have to worry about in 3D...
