In poetry:

The whole applied, with dext'rous art,
Instantly swell'd her nether part;
She look'd, for all the world, as plump
As if she'd put on a cork rump.
The fashion chang'd of female kind,
Some swell before, but she behind.

How many a youthful head we've seen put on its silver crown
What sudden changes back again to youth's empurpled brown!

In science:

Put in each vertex a lamp, which may be on or off. A lamplighter performs the simple random walk on X and when he moves from a vertex x to a vertex y he changes randomly the state of the lamps in x and y , that is both the lamps may be turned on or off with equal probability.
Harmonic analysis of finite lamplighter random walks
An example is the specific heat at low temperatures: because the central charge determines the change in free energy when the 2D classical system is compactified in one direction (i.e., put on a cylinder), the quantum system at finite temperature has a contribution to the specific heat that is proportional to c.

We can change however the position of the supermarkets in such a way that every supermarket is somewhere the most far away supermarket. (How to do this? Put the supermarkets on the vertices of a convex 6-gon.) This shows that if we change the position of the supermarkets, the set of 5-sectors may change as well.
