Bending spaghetti

    [SOLVED] Bending spaghetti

    I ran into a very interesting phenomen. When bending spaghetti, it always breaks into three or more pieces. By bending it, you can't break a piece of spaghetti into two pieces (note: bending from both ends or one end stationary). I heard that there is a mathematical solution for this problem. I was however unable to find it, and was wondering if someone here could help me out.
