The two tabletops in this image share identical dimensions; they are the same in both length and width. Open your Photoshop, check it and ponder the implications.

I always demand the tall, skinny glass of milk. People are constantly trying to take advantage.

Ah, you recall the discussion of conservation of volume. (Children believe that a tall, skinny glass contains more liquid than a short wide one even when the volume of each is the same.)
What is interesting to me about this image is that it isn't about conservation of volume (or surface area) distributed over different dimensions. The table on the left isn't long and skinny relative to the one on the right. The dimensions, l & w, are exactly the same for both tables.
