"The difficulty is not guessing the riddle. It is to explain the riddle" anyways, let's start.

Really, you square me and cut corners of the square just to explain.. that food is equals to 4?! Disgusting false misleading proof.

Well, yeah, I am commonly known to be related to that food.

So kids sometimes draw me, but most of them made me ugly or became another form that looks similar to me but stretched.

I know some people say that I can't be inside that 3 dimensional blocky game or it breaks the game! Look how powerful I am!

Let me just be honest with you. You suck at counting how many sides I have. By the way, "infinite" is not a number, nor an answer. (Maybe no need to explain this, because I believe this is depends on your belief.)

Even in the kids drawing, I was commonly quarterly drawn with lines flying out of me.

A multiple of me would be helpful in showing how primary and secondary colours relate.

Also, people "draw" me to shut another people out in heretic and rebellance. But with the power of love, one can win by "drawing" a bigger me!

So, what am I?

whereas

  • $\begingroup$ You are correct! But the explanation need to be correct before I give u the tick. A very good attempt. "Really, you square... Disgusting false misleading proof" is refering to a thing. But the "Well, yeah, I am commonly known to be related to that food" is kind of correct. The "Also, people "draw" me to shut... a bigger me!" is refering to a thing. Not separated. But your answer "circle of friends" is very related to that paragraph! $\endgroup$ – ministic2001 Jun 25 '16 at 4:54

    $\begingroup$ The disgusting false misleading proof is the one where you start with a unit circle and a circumscribed square, and then gradually "flip" corners of the square in to the circle making shapes with more and more sides, all of them axis-parallel, getting closer and closer to the circle -- but always with perimeter 8. Then you say "so in the limit we see that the circle's perimeter is 8, so pi=4", which of course is entirely wrong. $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Jun 25 '16 at 9:46
  • $\begingroup$ really, such a thing exists? $A=\pi r^2$ is a simple disproof. $\endgroup$ – Jasen Jun 25 '16 at 21:44

First response on this forum. I'll give it a shot... I'm sure I'm off a bit.

Really, you square me and cut corners of the square just to explain.. that food is equals to 4?! Disgusting false misleading proof.

"Square me" is possibly related to the Pythagorean theorem? "Food equals 4" is a pyramid with 4 sides not counting the base.

Well, yeah, I am commonly known to be related to that food.

The food pyramid.

So kids sometimes draw me, but most of them made me ugly or became another form that looks similar to me but stretched.

There are multiple types of triangles and are based on side length.

I know some people say that I can't be inside that 3 dimensional blocky game or it breaks the game! Look how powerful I am!

You got me! :)

Let me just be honest with you. You suck at counting how many sides I have. By the way, "infinite" is not a number, nor an answer. (Maybe no need to explain this, because I believe this is depends on your belief.)

You could mathematically split a triangle into an infinite number of other triangles.

Even in the kids drawing, I was commonly quarterly drawn with lines flying out of me.

4 triangles = a kite with a string.

A multiple of me would be helpful in showing how primary and secondary colours relate.

3 sides on a triangle; 3 primary colors.

Also, people "draw" me to shut another people out in heretic and rebellance. But with the power of love, one can win by "drawing" a bigger me!

I have to think about this one as well! :)

That's my take at least. Was fun :)
