The fuse breaks where the wire is smallest (can transmit the least current) and furthest from the junctions where it can dissipate heat, which happens to be near the middle.

The exact place where by design it is intended to break.

The accretion theory in action.
Have you ever noticed that you find lots of coat hangers, more coat hangers than stuff to hang, yet also find a drawer full of single socks, socks without a matching sock.

This great problem has puzzled science down since socks and coat hangers were first invented.

Now it has been solved.

The answer lies in genetics. Socks accrete with a another sock during periods of high temperature, humidity and turbulence; two socks become one. As the humidity lowers and temperature lessens that melded sock splits, but the high heat and humidity followed by rapidly decreasing humidity accompanied by turbulence often causes copy errors so that when the sock splits, one or even both resulting critters become...

Yes Virginia, it becomes a coat hanger.

The result is that in every wash/dry cycle there will always be cases where one or more socks seem to disappear and that when hanging clothes up, there always seems to be an excess of coat hangers.

Re: The accretion theory in action.
But I have proof.

Look at the coat hanger neck and what do you see? Why a double helix of course.

Well, the walrus and the carpenter may need to be considered there. And sealing wax and cabbages and kings.

A great opportunity missed
Sadly jet did not take advantage of his basic idea of birthing planets and sponges on a stick to weave a story of sentient suns and their offspring and whether or not the Earth claims that mother always loved Jupiter more.
