My math is along the lines of measure twice, cut once.
Not answering for Stromboli and carpentry ... but cutting isn't allowed in topology, just stretching and folding the clothes after being cleaned ;-)
Yes, if your daughter mentions the Dedekind Cut ... call 911! She responds with ... "get Real, dad".
Maybe knot (calling knot theorist) ... a topologist father wouldn't be concerned with anorexia/bulemia ... since the "genus" of his daughter is still the same (technically a toroid, just like our worm ancestors).
