People don't want Brexit any more.

We'll be at the People's Vote March in London on Saturday calling for politicians to wake up to this fact.

It's absolutely not what I want to be doing with my weekend but this is too important an issue.

This post made me realise how little I've been using G+ lately, and how almost everyone has long since moved on. For over a year I've only been here at all because there are just a handful of awesome people still posting here. I've loved posting here and I love you all so please use these links to connect elsewhere:

Me: You know, our kitten trains itself by play too.

Daughter half looks up from phone game: Huh?

Me: She'll be a great hunter one day. With no formal teaching.

Daughter: What?

Me: But she'll only ever be able to use her claws. You can use anything.

Daughter: Dad, quiet. I'm busy.

Mattias Malmer pointed me at an interesting space-filling shape that I hadn't seen before, with curved faces.

It was discovered by an architect, Peter Pearce, in the 1960's. He called it the 'space filling bcc saddle tetrahedron'.

The theory goes that you can't die in the multiverse because there is always a subset of increasingly bizarre universes where you survive.

Which means that I must apologise to those versions of you that are trapped here, because this universe is getting very weird.

Interesting use of chemical Turing patterns to manufacture a material with desirable properties. Start with a liquid system, generate the Turing pattern, then polymerize the result to get a solid structure.

This approach has enormous potential.

Here's the video of that image, simulated in Ready: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvIcbEGHQ2o

The strange paths of turmite LLRR. Random walks that return to the origin every time and SOMEHOW manage to grow a smooth shape that's almost a cardioid but not quite.
