that was out-of-the-box :-)

I think he meant "... solvable by DEstruction." :-)

Or maybe solvable by deconstruction?

Ah, I meant construction as a proof technique, as in, to show something exists just find one.

But, you must admit that "proof by deconstruction (of bridge)" has a certain ring to it...

Does this mean that Euler was the first constructivist?

Did Euler wear a tie? Did they even have ties back then?

I'm pretty sure he wore at least three ties.

I bet you he wore a bowtie as well, bowties are cool!

Of course Königsberg became Kaliningrad and TWO of the seven bridges disappeared.....
