How many shopping carts? What's the smallest number of shopping carts that can make a circle?

How many shopping carts are in the circle? Will they all roll arranged like this?



How many carts in that circle? (And how long did it take somebody to build?)



What is the fewest number of shopping carts that it would take to complete this?







































Who did this, it's awesome? Then, what is the smallest circle you could make?











Did this happen all by itself overnight? sort of like Safeway crop circles?




what would it take to get this thing spinning? (push where and how hard?)





Polygon, which, in the limit at the number of sides increases, is a circle.





How will they get them apart when they have to return them t the store?
