Can't get three separate pieces in one try? Can reach only two? (see Figure 1).
Never mind. In fact nobody can do this. You can make the tears more
then in two places of the strip as shown in Figure 2, and you still
will not be able to tear it into more than two separate pieces in one

Suggest this toy to your friends and see their reactions. Let them
pull as strong as they can. You can even offer the prize, if someone
of your friends tear the strip into three pieces in one try.
Are you still doubted that your prize will stay always with you?
