I must admit my incapacity here. A different angle of approach seems impossible to me. Very Good!

But on Greece and Europe?

No tenable arguments will change the discrepant measurements after frenetic casuistry has made them decide that consuetudinary attitudes can no longer be availing.

(not my usual vocabulary)

As their captain attempted to triangulate a course, the first mate, normally a man of foursquare habit, was seen to swing on a makeshift trapeze slung between the fore and main topgallants, while the rest of the crew pursued one another in a vicious circle, performing actions entirely orthogonal to their duties.

Thanks, BranShea, I really had fun with that one! The other scenario that sprang to mind was a high school geometry class ... perhaps that will inspire you?

When Renaissance painters discovered orthogonal projection they made a foursquare reverence to it and swung the perspective trapeze obsessively, ending in the vicious circle of a triagulate position between reality and deception.

So obsessed was he with his copperplate hand, he became a virtual tin god, forever grasping for the brass ring of approval, with an iron curtain visage enlivened by the faint silver lining of a derisory smirk.
