How To Get Your Saturdays Back

How have your weekends been lately? Mine were missing Saturdays, for a reason that I shall not disclose. For the same undisclosable reason, I believe that this wine bottle would be a great place to start.

The bottle, or to be more accurate, the Klein bottle, actually has complicated science behind it:

A real Klein bottle is an object with no inside and no outside that can only exist in four dimensions. These glass models exist in three, which means that unlike the real thing, they can actually hold liquid.

The difference between the models and the real thing is that by adding an extra dimension, you can make it so that the neck of the bottle doesn’t actually intersect the side of the bottle. Take a couple aspirin and try to picture that in your head.

Just so you know, my 4D imagination failed me, so don't feel bad if yours did as well.
