It actually will not!  I was vaguely aware of the Stax being nonstandard, but I've known the Pringles was a hyperbolic paraboloid since about 1978. It's a part of a torus, imagine the inside surface of a donut's hole.  Pre-internet days in high school physics, someone asked that question and that led to about a 6-week feud with Mr. Young, who Doubted Very Much that there was a geometer's term for a donut's shape.

I didn't realize that was a classification - hadn't thought about it before for some reason.   milk, advice, luggage, rice, news., etc...

I love turnbuckles. I have needed to use them only on rare occasions but I always loved just saying the word. Melodic and softly percussive.

TIL that the Psychotic Turnbuckles, a has-to-be-Australian band, is Australian but made up of expat pro wrestlers from Pismo Beach, Calif.
