What’s the point of that fence?

I was thinking about fence (the word fence). That thought process progressed into chain link fence. Then, I imagined that British lady from the TV show “The Weakest Link” saying “You ARE!!! the Weakest Link. Good bye.” Then, I thought “white picket fence”. I imagined a fence just along the front of the yard with the other sides unbound. What would be the point of that, I thought. I could just walk around. It’s not even aesthetically pleasing because I would spend too much time wondering where the rest of the sides are. I thought the only purpose of a one length fence is at a football game after the letter ‘D’. Nonetheless, I knew people had these one length fences, and so my mind continued to churn. There must be a reason. Then it struck me. A plausible reason: the person living in this house with a one length fence is afflicted with the condition where both of their eyes are crossed. So, they can see pretty well from both sides, but they have a blind spot straight ahead. Thus, they built a one length fence to prevent people from approaching them out of their blind spot while they are¬†lounging on their front porch. Please don’t refute this possibility as it would send my mind down another rabbit hole of thought until I came up with another possible reason why a person would put a one length fence in front of their house.
