I wanted to follow up with a Mandelbrot joke but decided to reveal my inner geekiness a bit later
Lightcycle, I'm sure I speak for many of your RR readers who are waiting breathlessly for the Mandelbrot joke.

Do you know what the "B." in Benoit B. Mandelbrot stands for?
"Benoit B. Mandelbrot"

Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week. Try the veal...

A recent technical paper by a food scientist who works for Hormel reported discovering a recurring visual pattern in sausage meat. This pattern remains constant irrespective of magnification. He calls it mandelbrotwurst.

Mandelbrot actually passed away a couple of years ago. Thank god he wasn't murdered though, it would have taken police forever to draw the chalk outline...
