Snow Spheres

While walking around the park taking bleak, wintry pictures, I happened upon a boy with a perfect-snowball-making device.  I asked him if he would make one for me so I could photograph it.  “I like taking pictures of math, ” I said.  He produced the following sphere for me.

I then asked if he would hold the snowball in his hand so I could photograph that, too.  He responded matter-of-factly, “Then I’ll throw it at you”.  It seemed like a reasonable deal, so I agreed.

    What if I had a device that could make perfectly round pies? Could I throw a pie at you if I let you photograph it?! 😀

    Maybe if you could make perfectly septagonal pies.
