I recently had occasion to look up how to fold an origami cube, at which point I learned another name for the single-sheet, small opening at one end cube is "water bomb."
Maybe it's just me but my heart is warmed by the thought of little Japanese children patiently folding up a few dozen paper cubes...to fill with water and use like water balloons on the unwary. Heads up, Mr. Salaryman!
