|A clever "twist" on the usual Mobius band story.
Answers the age old question: How can you win lots of money betting
against poor saps who don't understand topology?
I use this story with children in mathematics classes as an enrichment activity. they have paper and create the Mobius strip as the stroy is read so they can see what is happening and make predictions. it's a great enrichment!

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
