From the lovely lzz, a post from a fair while ago.

Recently I have been listening to Gareth's supervisor talk about shapes on the radio each Tuesday morning. Today I learned that a sphere is not a bagel, but a teapot is a bagel, and hence the issue at hand is whether the universe is a sphere or a bagel.

I'm so glad I'm a linguist and not a mathematician. For a start, I am now slightly worried that somebody might come along, slice the universe in half, fill it with cream cheese and eat it.
