The comments are, at times, more enlightening and entertaining than the questions...whether correctly stated or not...so long as the exchange remains civil. :)

I beg your pardon... When were TV set s ROUND? And coins are round by the same reason water pipes are cylindrical. That shape allows ther maximum wueight in the least space.

Very interesting - I liked the cartoon characters the most and will be watching for triangles wherever I go now, lol. I looked up the football and found that both rugby and football used pig bladders so I guess it's which came first the chicken or the egg

jfserrano, Similar shape but very different in size, rugby ball is rounder at the ends and quite a bit larger.

I like the triangular villain. I never noticed it before, but our evolutionary genes probably identify it and alert us to the danger.

I doubt the football explanation is right. I believe the ball shape comes from the rugby ball shape. American football is the american version of rugby

I never thought about the roundness of coins before, figured it is just easy shape for pockets purses etc

😂No wonder television was called Box. It was in the box before. Better watch out the shapes of the human faces.🥺

And manhole covers are round so they can’t accidentally fall into the hole.
