Chef Gustave gaped at his creation. He had just sliced the thinnest piece of cucumber in the world. It was literally one atom of thickness.

After years of practice in the culinary arts, he had finally made his magnum opus.

I wonder if I can do even better than this, thought Gustave.

With great concentration, he prepared to cut the next slice. This one would have to be less than one atom thick.

The knife fell on the cucumber. Success!

At this precise instant, a nuclear explosion destroyed all of Manhattan.
