With better technology, the forks can sited on towers, rotating 360 degrees and bringing in more taxes.

And that's it. Short and sweet.

I might try doing the towers and forks, but I am hamfisted at drawing these days. ‎

Morton's Fork https://www.google....r&q=morton%27s+fork

       But does that really change their shape, or only the viewer's perception of their shape?

       Excellent and informative category choice.   

       Google doesn't seem to know what Bishop Berkeley's fork is. Perhaps you should tell it.

       "Recall that Locke claims that 'shape' is a primary property because one can’t alter the shape of a thing without altering the object itself. But, Berkeley claims one can alter the shape simply by changing my angle of viewing." <link>

       Also, [pocmloc], there's a deliberate confusion with Morton's Fork. (Morton was a bishop, as was Berkeley, but Morton was also a tax assessor).

       Thank you, my knowledge of Morton's Fork comes from 1066 and all that, so the only thing I knew about it was that it was long and pointy and used for prodding people. I see now going back to the source that this was to encourage them to hand over their money, but I had forgotten that (obviously not memorable enough. Berkley was not mentioned.
