ROFL, Like I've told others, I never pass up a chance to post the old pic of Richard C. It till makes me LOL and the funny thing is, is that it wasn't a photoshop by a fellow FReeper. It was really on CNN.

I think i'm gonna cry I'm laughing so hard.

Then again, he may be onto something.... ;o)

Meanwhile, the postal monopoly is painting at least some of its rectangular postal boxes to appear like R2D2, while offering this commemorative stamp set:

It isn't all that crisp and defined.

The circular orbit would probably be more accurate, too.

Agree that this "hexagon" isn't very impressive, especially with geological features such as the Giant's Causeway here on Earth.

I just gave up beer this year. A couple of years ago I gave up ALL booze. That was a pain. Just beer is uncomfortable, but OK....so far.

If that's the retainer nut, doesn't it belong on Uranus?

Absolutely. 6 nearly equal sides is hard to get naturally, unless this is a giant fractal.

To: D-fendr
It is the most efficient shape for packing/stacking. It provides the most area for a given perimeter. Bees use it:

Sorry to bust your love-fest with the hexagon D-Fendr, the circle provides the largest area for a given perimeter.

Also I don't think it can beat a cube for ease of stacking... With hexagon tubes you can never pack to the edge of the container regardless of the side of the hexagon.

However, you are correct, bees do use it ;-)
