Borromean rings

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 21, 2008

Borromean rings are a configuration of three rings arranged so that no two rings are interlocked but all three together are. No need for the oven…that completely baked my noodle. A blog I regularly read (can’t remember which one right now) recently started to compile a list of metaphors in search of subjects…these rings should be right at the top of the list.

Update: Here it is, Russell Davies’ Analogy Library. (thx, rod & zach)
