Square Tires

They sound really dumb, right? Really bouncy and hard to turn...

But square tires work PERFECTLY on roads that are shaped like this:

(Well, those bumps should all be equal sizes and correspond with the size of the square tires, but if it WAS all perfect, the bike would ride perfectly smooth.  I'm free-handing this in Paint, after all...)

So I guess you can apply this to other things in life. Sometimes it isn't the tire that's the problem; maybe it's just the road. Also, every shape of tire has a road that it can ride perfectly smooth on. No kidding. Try drawing a road for an ellipse.

I think that is pretty profound actually. Sometimes when life feels all out of sorts, it is time to look for the right road for this point in our lives.
