Math Hour: Circular reasoning

Why so many things in nature are round? What is a boundary of a surface? Do round things tend to have smaller boundaries? Can we always determine what a boundary is? We’ll start our story with the adventures of Queen Dido in the ancient kingdom of Carthage and continue with crazier and crazier examples which bewilder scientists up to this day.
