    Mmm, a skating rink is more oval. But I’d skate on a round one. Might keep the hockey players away.

    tubular makes sense for surfers since they can be inside a huge tube of water. not so much on the outside.

    Dr Pedanto, here.

    A trapeze would be more appropriate with a trapezoid (a quadrilateral with two parallel sides), being from the Greek word for “table”, τράπεζα (trápeza) literally “having three feet”: archaic Greek tables were quadrilateral but narrower at the single-leg end, for stability.

    And why three feet? A piece of furniture with three feet, e.g. a stool, is stable on any irregular surface, since any three points define a plane and three points are therefore automatically always in the same plane.

    And why are trapezes so called? Because for (vitally necessary) stability, the anchors are a bit farther apart than the length of the bar.

    Etymology is so cool. (Discussion of how you get “three” from Greek τρα- is for another time.)
