Just trying to think of counter-examples. What if you had three square pancakes lined up in a row? I can't think of a circle that would cut all three in half, unless you allow for an infinite radius, in which case the circle becomes a straight line. Is this allowed?*Originally posted by David113***The pancakes can't be rearranged.** - 18 Jan '08 21:21

I thought this, then thought if you get something that's so almost infinite radius this line is only slightly curved, then you can surely make it cut the three.*Originally posted by PBE6***Just trying to think of counter-examples.
