How not to store fibre-optics

To continue my "look-how-stupid-I-am" series (see first installment here), I will show you how not to store a fibre-optics cable. See evidence on the right.

Thing is, the fibre in "fibre-optics cable" is made out of glass, and while very thin glass does bend a bit, it will not be happy if you bend it too much. So while the method to the right saves much precious storage-space, it does not save precious fibres, alas.

On the other hand, I can now order my own nifty fibres!
