Thinking Outside the Box

You've probably heard the admonition to think outside the box, but what does it really mean to think outside the box? I decided to do some research, which you can see in the figures below. After pushing the self-timer button on my camera, I almost fell on my face while trying to get inside the box before the picture was snapped. My conclusion, therefore, is that's much easier, and certainly much safer, to think outside the box.
