    • @MythologyFreak Mythology Freak I know a spell... it involves atonal jazz and a serpinski's pyramid made of Toblerones... and writing George Hart a politely worded letter, again. Honestly though, I'd rather squash the beef with Grey before it gets started. Shape politics always gets so personal... Anyway, you don't bring your queen out early in the game.

  • CGP Grey sounds like he has joined an autistic space cult that worships Hexagons for their pursuit of efficiency, optimization, stability, anti-entropy, etc. over all else.

  • Bees build tubes not hexagons. The heat of bees working around the hive melts the circles into hexagons. Bees don't care about your bestagon. They just wanna chew holes they can fit in.

  • O hexagon, which art the bestagon, Hallowed be thy shape, Six sides that sit, In tilings fit, No self divisions to debase. Maximize this day our surface to border ratio, And forgive us our wasted space, as we strive to eliminate it. For thine is truth and the structure for ever. Amen

  • I thought bees made their honeycombs in the shape of circles, and the wax just shifts as it dries to form the hexagons we are all familiar with.

    Donald BlakeDonald Blake5 giorni fa
  • Another argument for this, is that when bees construct their hives, they actually start making circles, and then they upgrade it by making them hexagonal, again, hexagons are the bestagons.

  • Finally I have an explanation for why I see grids sometimes! Especially when I wake up from sleeping or if I close my eyes really shut - I see a blue-purple hexagonal pattern (clear as day, a grid of these dots perfectly forming a hexagonal latice). I've seen this phenomenon on the internet before but nobody really knows why it happens or even that it happens.

  • i have to disagree with the distance thing in square boards. if you define the distance to be one yo each of the eight nearby squares (as most times it’s done) it is still a valid metric space. still, even if i don’t agree on that, hexagons are the bestagon.
