I got a great idea the other day: a tin containing one grain of maize.

I thought of it while noticing that tin cans’ sizes strike a balance between, on the one hand, the price and the praticality of big tins, and on the other the maximum amount one can eat, which tends to limit the size one will get.

I believe I’ve reached the final limit.
