Allacciare le scarpe.

How many possible ways are there to lace an average shoe? This simple question, when answered with mathematics, results in some surprisingly big numbers - on an average shoe with six pairs of eyelets, there are 1,961,990,553,600 ways to feed a shoelace though those 12 eyelets.
That's almost 2 TRILLION possibilities! [*]

Un sito che ha fatto "scalpore" mentre ero al mare. E allora lo riportiamo a galla, il 2 Agosto.
