I needed to draw an 'arbitrary' triangle on the blackboard. I did not want it to be special in any way - not nearly isosceles, not nearly right. And for my purposes I wanted it to be acute. So what I wished for was an acute triangle that was as far from being either right or isosceles as possible. I found this difficult to do. What should it look like? (orig.)
