The shortest distance

060915

“The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.” Remember that from geometry?

So, it turns out that works in Euclidean geometry, and the actual, universal truth about the shortest distance between two points is “relative to the situation.”

Therefore, I believe this wall is non-Euclidean: look at that vent pipe snaking its way up the wall.
