I think that I have an explanation to the triangle inequality. Only please say to me if I right or wrong... Between 2 point pass only one line. This line is the distance and it is the shortest line of the 2 points. So every other line is longer than the line above. (between the 2 points). So the zigzag line as triangle inequality is longer than the line of the 2 points. QED
