    “A right angle is an angle which is equal to 90°, one quarter of a full revolution.” According to mathematics.

    Which can be taken to mean, that it is one quarter of a full circle.

    However, this definition, which would appear on the outset to radiate solidity and irrefutability, is just about to suffer the most violently blasting refutation, at my hands, that it has ever had in its miserable life of some 200 years since that so called mathematical prodigy but really nitwit, Archimedes, who rendered it extinct.

    For consider the following fact that would effectively disprove this theory. What would happen if the circle were to be stretched in every direction? In that case, to make up for the space, another angle would be added, would form, where there was no angle before, between one end of the right angle and one line.

    So the right angle would really be more than the right angle it was, if you see what I mean.

    One moment…Stop please…Stop! Can you please stop clapping? well, well. I would go on, but the round of clapping that is already starting from the awestruck audience, is so loud I can hardly hear myself think. Compared to this, Obama received but a whisper of applause that day on TV. Well, crushing theories of lesser scientists is certainly an entertaining pastime to indulge in, but it has it’s side effects, like when people are overenthusiastic about praising you…

    Wow. Your ability to twist words is creativity personified! You are evidently a proffessor of literature from the university of Yale, South UK. A candidate for a Nobel, I shouldnt wonder! Man!

    Yes! I sat for a good 5 minutes to figure it out too, with my tongue sticking out and everything. My mommy says I am her little Einstein (love you mommy!). By the way, good luck on staying in this section until tomorrow.

    With your tongue sticking out? You are lucky your mommy didnt give it a good pull. Nasty things to have hanging loose all over the place, tongues.

    Firstly, Super genius, if you really were a genius, you should know that you can't win a Nobel Prize for mathematics, which is what this really is.

    Secondly, assuming here that by "stretch", you mean deform it in such a way that it folds inward, you still haven't disproved it. The term right angle means 90 degrees, full stop. I do not know where you got the latter part of your sentence from i.e. one quarter of a full revolution, but rest assured that it is used to serve as a way to picturise the angle.

    An equivalent version of that statement would be an angle perpendicular to a straight line.

    Besides, even if we accepted the logic of your argument, you yourself just proved the very thing you're trying to prove. See here:

    In that case, to make up for the space, another angle would be added,
    In which case, you would add an angle to 90 degrees, forcing it to stop being a right angle and being an obtuse angle i.e. greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.

    Thirdly, geniuses shouldn't make the mistake of posting mathematics in a physics forum.

    Fourthly, congratulatrions on discovering non-Euclidean geometry. That would make you, oh, about the millionth since Lobachewsky first discovered it.

    Amazing!

    All my life I have wondered how it happens that a small pizza
    is cut into 4 pieces but a big pizza is cut into 6 pieces,
    and still everybody gets what is right, and every piece
    is served at 90 degrees (at least here in Centigrade countries).

    Yours in gratitude and awe,
    L.L.

    You'd have a bigger circle.

    In other words, angles appear when circles get bigger?

    So the right angle would really be more than the right angle it was, if you see what I mean.
    Not really. Wouldn't it then be something entirely different from a "right" angle?

    One moment…Stop please…Stop! Can you please stop clapping? well, well.
    Why? Did you fart just then?

    I would go on, but the round of clapping that is already starting from the awestruck audience, is so loud I can hardly hear myself think.
    Is thinking so noisy that you can hear it?

    Compared to this, Obama received but a whisper of applause that day on TV. Well, crushing theories of lesser scientists is certainly an entertaining pastime to indulge in, but it has it’s side effects, like when people are overenthusiastic about praising you…
    If I could stand in front of you now, I'd be more than honored to pat you on the back, congratulate you for a job well done and hopefully be the first to shake you by the neck.
