Corker (Posted on 2006-10-02) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Take a glass that is partially filled with water and drop a cork into it. The cork won't float in the center, but keeps drifting to one side and attaching itself to the side of the glass.

Without swirling the water, how can you make the cork float in the center?

Superior?  Whose perception?  Trouble here is that when we get something good, and the "world should be beating on our door" there isn't enough support and we lose it, often to US capital.

Nah! We all tend to have an insular view of our environments, but this is not a forum to discuss that.

Just interesting to see sometimes how language can be 'distorted' by brand usage.
