Sorry kiddies. It's true. No matter how much that planet in your favorite console RPG looks like a sphere when it gets blown to Hell from space, it's not: It's a big, fat doughnut.

Don't believe me? Fine.

I challenge you to trianglulate that World Map of yours with only 4 triangles.

Perhaps you'd rather find its Euler characteristic? Is it 2? Hm?

Or if you prefer, you could tie a string around the "equator" and just kindly slip it off the planet altogether. It's easy on the real world....
