Yes, of course. Everybody's seen that. If not on Wikipedia,
then on any of a dozen other Q&A sites. The logic is impeccable.

But that raises the question: why are there so many SQUARE
and rectangular manhole covers? (See my links)

And even more interesting to me, as a cyclist: why are sewer
and storm-drain gratings always rectangular. Given that they're
where I have to ride, I can assure anyone that they are also
frequently driven over by vehicles much larger and heavier
than me and my bike.
