Orange Goblin, the finer points of this site are quite lost on me, but it looked like a great resource so I sent this post to my brother who appreciated it. From the horse's mouth: "very cool - thanks."

I did say horse's mouth and not ass, right? (just kiddin', li'l bro, just kiddin'!)

I remember that in high-school geometry, we discussed how there wasn't any convenient way in Euclidean geometry to trisect an angle. Later, I realized there was an easy way to do this with a ruler.
