    Is there a way to have a lot of people attend a party in my honor where they all bring me presents and then just watch me eat a cake?

    Do the slices have to be all the same size? If not, I think I figured it out

    They’re not all the same size, and if you can figure it out first, you should get first dibs. (I’m assuming the cake is convex shaped).

    This makes me think of the classic “barometer question.”

    How can you determine the height of a building with a barometer?

    An expected answer might be to measure the air pressure at ground level and on the roof and calculating based on the different readings.

    Or maybe dropping the barometer from the roof, timing its fall to impact, and calculating from the acceleration of gravity.

    Or tying a long string to the barometer, lowering it to the ground, marking and measuring the length of the string to that point.

    Or measuring the shadow of the building and the shadow of the barometer at a given time and calculating from that information.

    There are many other approaches. My favorite is to speak to the superintendent of the building: “Hello. I will give you this lovely barometer if you will tell me how tall this building is.”

    The story is of uncertain origin, one account involving Niels Bohr as a young physics student.

    It is often cited to encourage test creators to be as specific as possible if a certain bit of knowledge is being tested.

    I figured it out. I’ll admit that my cake cutting skills aren’t quite good enough to ensure that, if I were to actually try it, the slices would be perfectly straight.
