Have you heard of the three Greek impossibilities? Is it true that the rule was you could only use an unmarked straight edge and a compass?

Is a string an unmarked straightedge AND a compass. I think I remember it is.

That's opposite of our traditional wooden ruler straightedge and our bendable two pointed compass.

Hmmm. Can you figure it out? (=
