Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
"A square peg in a round hole", or "the round pegs in the square holes" as used in the advertisement, are examples of idiomatic expressions. Alike these expressions, the meaning of many other English idioms are easily understood just by analysing their words and establishing a relation with the context in which they are inserted.
Bearing this in mind, what does the expression "the round pegs in the square holes" mean in Text?
Questão 19 3639122ACAFE Medicina 2021
When it comes to looking inedible the squid
goes all out. Tentacles, suckers, big blobby eyes,
anything to help communicate the message
"Do not eat me, under any circumstances".
 There's even a beak in there somewhere.
It's really more threat than feast.
Which got us thinking. What on earth
was the first person to eat squid doing?
Who in their right mind could look at
 raw squid and say, "That's the snack for me"?!?
TO THE VISIONARY WHO FIRST SAW
TENTACLED BRAIN SACS
AND THOUGHT "LUNCH".
What a weirdo. What a hero.
 Because as we know, squid just happens
to be one of life's greatest pleasures:
chargrilled squid salad, chilli squid linguine,
crisp calamari dunked in mayo...
So we'd like to say a heartfelt
 thank you to the first person to eat squid.
And to all the food pioneers who boldly
ate what none had eaten before -
giving those funny-looking foods
the chance to be delicious.

TEXTO PARA A QUESTÃO
As astronomers gaze into the depths of space, they do so with
unease: They don't know precisely what the universe is made of.
Surprisingly, no one knows the stars' exact chemical
composition: how many carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms
 they have relative to hydrogen, the most common element.
These numbers are crucial, because they affect how stars
live and die, what types of planets form and even how readily
life might arise on other world's.
Twenty years ago, astronomers expressed confidence in the
 numbers they had been working with. Now, not so much. The
problem lies not in the far corners of the cosmos, but much
closer to home. Astonishingly, scientists don't know exactly
what the sun is made of. As a result, they don't know what the
other stars are made of, either.
 “The sun is a fundamental yardstick,” says Martin Asplund,
an astrophysicist at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, in
Germany. “When we determine the abundance of a certain
element in a star or a galaxy or a gas cloud anywhere in the
universe, we use the sun as a reference point.”
 The sun's location in the Milky Way also makes it a good
representative of the entire galaxy. Most stars reside in giant
galaxies like the Milky Way, which makes the sun a touchstone
for the entire cosmos.
For nearly a century, astronomers have judged stars normal
 or not by seeing whether their chemical compositions match the
sun's. Most stars near us do; some don't.
