Have you ever wondered why some objects are a particular shape? For example, why is a boxing ring square-shaped? Is a clover clubbed shaped, or is a club clover-shaped? Does water have a shape?
But let’s not digress. Today, our subject for Sunday Stills is the word ‘round.’
‘Round‘ – I’m not talking here about circles, but objects that have a definite round shape.
Here’s an example.
Did you know that round objects have a purpose?
No? Well, let me fill you in on the details.
For centuries, some of the human race (including myself) have grown, produced, and used round objects to store particular objects and emotions.
Here’s a list of some of the items I’ve placed in round objects.
- A cat flap for a submarine
- A blowup dartboard
- Handbrakes for a canoe
- Waterproof teabags
- A wooden frying pan
- A rope-less skipping-rope
- Peepholes found on doors made mainly from clear-glass
- Diet water
- A paperback book that claimed to contain the most epic ‘YouTube’ videos ever
- A warning sign at the bottom of the battery compartment of my TV remote-control that read ‘The Batteries have Been Removed.’
- Meatless meatballs
- A snowball maker
- Shoe umbrellas
You get the picture, yes?
All those objects would be useless to the majority of the human race and our planet would be more cluttered if it were not for the round objects they can be stored in.
But it’s not all about funny, meaningless, useless objects.
Round items have also been used to store other objects.
Some of these objects may smell, look and taste good, but some hold secrets that, if released, can destroy the lives of those we love or those around us.
Take, for example, the flowers inside this object.
I put them in there for a good reason. Once I got them inside, I had to make sure they could never get out. That’s why the vessel that holds these flowers is round. With no edges, there is no way of them getting out or anybody getting in.
Does size matter?
Well, it depends what object you’re thinking about, but the tiniest of round objects are used as vessels for storing thousands of forbidden, dark secrets.
If you come across tiny, round objects like the ones in the above picture, don’t be tempted to break any of them open. You may just live to regret it.
And what about one of the biggest round objects known to mankind?
I wonder if the round object in the above picture was created to keep danger from getting in? Or was it created to stop any threat from getting out?
Fancy a challenge?
How many round objects can you spot in this photo?
