I don't know, but I went down fractal lane today.

Who here spent way too many hours looking at fractals when drinking?

Well it looks like an aerial/Google Earth shot of some kind of estuary, but I'm stumped on that curley-q thingy.

It's pretty hard to play it on the internet.

It's your turn, trach. Dumb it down for us lowlifes.

I'm cursed, bimini. I remember everything.

And I'm not dumbing anything down for Miss Estuary.

It's a gift, you have, worth sharing

When I quoted it - there was no visible image.. You stuck a different image in after I posted...Quote my last post #275 and you'll see the original image down below the text/typing box if you scroll down to older posts, but it doesn't show in the forum. It's the "http" without an "s" that causes that...

Yeah, the first picture wouldn't post. I found another. Have another guess.

Well now the answer is in the image URL, so I have to disqualify myself.

well, hell, did it again.

Fascinating, though. That nothing can escape a black hole except it's own polar jets.
