    the way its working in my head if you have 2 sides out of square they have to be in the same plane so you have a parallelogram. I used to be all over this sort of stuff when i was a cabinetmaker full time as it has everything to do with door alignment.
    Like they say, if you don't use it you loose it.

    Put a cube on the ground, Lift one corner. two square flat faces, two flat parallelograms faces and two square* twisted faces.

    I think


    *Ok not 100% square as the lifted corner will have come in a little.
