Three rings (planar circles) are "linked" together, but you'll notice that none is directly linked with another.
- The red ring is "behind" the yellow.
- The yellow ring is "behind" the blue.
- The blue ring is "behind" the red.
Still, while none is intertwined with another, it is impossible to pull them apart.
Is this a paradox?
Can this really be built?

But again, think in three dimensions. I think it may be possible with rigid rings, where each of the rings are in different planes. This should be testable with 3 ordinary key rings.
