        Old doughnuts are still being sold by a company who sells current doughnuts, at least where I live. They're called "munchkins" lol.

                                          So the doughnut hole is not actually taken from the ole of a doughnut, rather, it is the doughnut that is taken from the hole.

                                            these rules apply to a sphere also, i think you need to explain the difference. if you move up on the earth you come out under, if you move right you come out left. pacman lives on a ball but there are only 4 openings, all other parts have walls on them. imagine a cross on a sphere. he lives inside the cross because he cant walk outside the walls of it.

                                                        I thought you couldn't cut a donut and stretch it out into a clyinder because the inner length bis shorter then the outer length. The animation ignores this

Then something happened but I don't need to write what that is because those that know don't need to be told and those who do not know are the kind of people known for extreme violence when faced with the truth. So I won't, can't, should but won't...

An object that is doughtnut has 2 circles if you look from the top, the inside circle and the outside circle, they are different but when put into the cylinder, both edges ( top to bottom) are equal, unless the shapes properties in spacetime warp to the doughnut, there would be some problems and it wouldnt really work out to be a square....... at all....
