Pretty cool idea. I agree, how do people figure out stuff like this.

I wonder what practical application it has. I am having trouble figuring that out too, other than a cute parlor puzzle. That would be cool to have in wood, actually sitting in you living room for guests to be puzzled by.

Fascinating, Art. I went to his channel, and he's got some other interesting ideas too. Just what I needed. A bunch of cool stuff to watch instead of doing my chores! Thanks.

With me the how is waaay too much time on his hands. But mainly, why?

I've heard of these people, most likely aliens of course and I'm not talking about from across the border.....way to much time and excess brain cells. I get a headache just trying to keep up. Ancient Alien Theorist believe this to be true.......and what does that even mean? Are these ancient aliens or ancient theorists? Inquiring minds want to know...

Back to my usual afternoon drooling.


Neat post but is there a reasonable application for something like this?

I guess one application would be to use it as a lock nut...jam the collar nut down, then turn the bolt head CCW to loosen it...Now I've got too much time on my hands...LOL...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.
