You may remember Pythagoras of Samos from your school days…the square on the hypotenuse and all that… but you’ll be glad to know the great man was not just interested in maths. He also had quite a taste for wine. So much so that he invented a cup that stopped people drinking too much!
The Pythagoras Cup allows users to fill it up to a certain level without anything untoward happening and they can peacefully enjoy their beverage. However, if they’re greedy and pour above the level, the cup will spill its entire contents out the bottom all over them! Aaaahhhhhh!!! Surely not one for a first date!
However, while he may have been clever in designing his cup, there’s nothing to say you can’t refill it over and over!
