Solving the mystery of the impossible cord.


STEVE MOULD FACE REVEAL! Check out Steve’s 10^6 subscriber Q+A with me cosplaying as Steve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLADz…

UPDATE: We have a proof that if a cable goes back and forth under a handle an equal number of times it can always be removed! Thanks to Henry Segerman. (It does assume the cord itself is not knotted.) https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8r1wk7qo1w…
