Take a piece of uncooked spaghetti. Hold it between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, and bend it so that it starts to bow. Continue bending it until it breaks.

Question 1: Why does it never break in the middle (note: this is, fundamentally, an easy question, as it has nothing to do with the compressibility of chickens).

Question 2: Why does it always break into three or more pieces?

As far as #1, that would be that the maximum bending happens near the fingers. The second one I don't know so much.

Go and try it. It doesn't necessarily happen near the fingers.
