Ha, got yer attention with that subject didn't I?

But it's true. Check out Margeaux Lange's site for more pictures. These are strangely gorgeous...

Clearly she's got the jewelry-making skills to do a top-notch job but I think someone with as much imagination but less metalworking skill could do a reasonable imitation.

Isn't that a kind of crystalline structure?

. It's a small pentacleavic structure (possibly, but not necessarily crystalline), embedded in a larger monocleavic (definitely non-crystalline) one.

The pentacleavic unit cell is clearly quasicrystalline. Combined with a true hexacleave, I think you could construct a fullerene (ah, "those snowy white globes tip't with vermillion").

Alternatively, you could do a Penrose tiling with two different bicleavics (tetrateats?) with different opening angles.

hey want to talk about ties and then lead into a fight over which is colder, the north or south pole?

From the link above.....In a nutshell, the South Pole is colder, a lot colder. Basically, it's colder not only because it's more than 9,000 feet (2,743 m) higher but also because it has a higher continentality than it's northern counterpart. Continentality is the measure to which a spot on the Earth's surface if influenced by a landmass. It's partially based on the distance to the sea or other large moisture source. Theoretically, the coldest minimum temperature should occur where the continentalty is highest. The area around the North Pole consists of ice flows, which are commonly about 10 ft (3m) thick, beneath which lies relatively warm seawater (~28 F or –2C). Since the South Pole is near the center of Antarctica, a landmass 1.7 times larger than Australia, and since the North Pole is in an ocean, albeit a frozen one, it's pretty obvious which one has a higher continentality.

Thats very interesting, i didn't know about continentality. Thanks Goodhart can use that in my geography work !

Oh, I've got the math background -- it's required for physics. But I'm not a professional mathematician: my B.S. and Ph.D. are both in physics. I took enough calculus as an undergrad to do what I need to do, but I'd be totally lost trying to read a real mathematics journal, for example.
