Not possible to make the MATCH-STICKS into a square, but the match-sticks can FORM a square.... just move the one on the bottom a little lower, and there's a square-shaped hole in the middle....

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
