Cup of greed, from which it is impossible to get drunk: the ancient prank of Pythagoras

Pythagoras was one of the greatest thinkers of his time and one of the greatest mathematicians in history. And he, apparently, was all right with a sense of humor, because only a genius and a merry fellow could create such a mug.

What is it actually about
Who said that mathematicians have no sense of humor? Here at Pythagoras, apparently, it was accurate, because otherwise a person would not have been able to come up with such a brilliant thing as this circle. Today, this intricate vessel is known under the names of “The Bowl of Justice”, “Mug of Greed”, “Pythagorean Cup”. At first glance, this is a fairly ordinary cup and only an incomprehensible protrusion in the center makes you think about what the vessel really is.

Today the Pythagorean circle is the greatest prank you could think of. The thing is that if you pour liquid into it fairly greedily (for example, to the brim), the vessel will “carefully” pour all the contents into the greatest disorder of the hunger. What is the secret?

Operating principle

In fact, the device Circles of Greed is very simple. Outside, this is an ordinary drinking vessel, but inside the cup is arranged like a siphon. In the center of the bowl there is a notch, and inside it there is a curved double channel hidden by two ends lowered down. In this case, one of the sides of the channel passes through the bottom.
Works circle on the law of communicating vessels. While the liquid is poured into the vessel no higher than the bend of the channel, the bowl can be used for its intended purpose. However, it is worth pouring more than allowed – to empty the vessel completely. More and boots ruin.

Appearance history

How exactly the circle appeared is unknown. Some claim that Pythagoras made it for slaves in Samos, where there was little water. This is a very dubious version. Others claim that Pythagoras created a bowl for his friends, who continually abused alcohol. It is only known that a circle appeared somewhere in the 6th century BC, in fact, when the great mathematician lived. Today, such mugs are sold in Greece as a souvenir.
