PowWow @ Peet's

Today was a lot about [feeding Naga] the Tetrakaidecahedron.

Now you may rightly raise your eyebrows, a lot of you, as you're thinking which one?

Do I mean Kelvin's Cell? Or are we talking the one that BCCs with the squashed dodecahedron?

Heck, even the cuboctahedron is a tetrakaideca, given the latter simply means 14 (perhaps your age even now?). Funny bumper sticker: Heck is for people who don't believe in Gosh (OK, only kinda funny).

See Synergeo 37796-97 for more on this tetrakaideca business (or go Google?).

My thanks to Glenn Stockton for bringing a copy of The Parsimonious Universe to the table -- reminds me of my Hargittai volume snapshot, also @ Peet's (Nick also present today, so some talk of Stallings).
