    Impossible object?


    Can this object be made from a single sheet of paper?



    Code:
                      *---------------*
                      |               |
                  *---|               |-----------*
                 /    |               |          /
                /     |               |         /
               /      |               |        /
              /       * - - - *-------*       /
             /               /       /       /
            /               /       /       /
           /               /       /       /
          *---------------*       *-------*

    Answer: .Yes!



    Spoiler:

    Code:
     
          *-----*-----------*-----*
          |     |     A     |   C |
          |     |           |     |
          |     |           |     |
          |     *.....*.....*     *
          |           |           |
          |           |           |
