if you take timbits (doughnut holes, or whatever else you call them)

Munchkins.

I Fully Understand the Problem!

I strongly doubt that.

Far Better from the Start to Give actual Examples! and Simplified Math to explain the Problem!

People can't understand the actual examples. People don't understand what a manifold is or what it means to be homeomorphic.

"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Don't be silly, ben's not people! ben just thinks he's people. Ben's really a figment of my imagination. Sorry ben, I was going to tell you earlier but I just didn't have the heart to break it to you before now. ;-)

Some towels also have manifolds.

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
