Hmmmm, I hadn't thought about why it is five sided (pentagon?). Adding that to the problem to be solved makes the five cylinder theory sound pretty good, I mean, none of us can ponder these issues endlessly and five sides with five cylinders - does anyone really think that is merely coincidental? (LOL)

Lets see if the inner cans are five sided, and if so, that should be proof enough, right?

Sometimes you just have to take things at face value. Jim
