Beakman challenge to put a straw through an uncooked potato. He does it and explains it's possible because it's a cylinder. He then uses a table with a bunch of cylinder legs in it to show why cylinders are strong (but only from the top). He further demonstrates this by rolling a piece of paper into a cylinder and showing it can hold up a brick.
