These guys need to slow down, if not actually reverse, so the rest of us can catch up. They are throwing off the grade curve of the internets.

I had seen the cookies before but the Fimo one worked AWESOME. That is one cool physical fractal.

Super cool, really -- but not as good as the Zeno cookies I had... er, still have (although they are now extremely small).

That's great, I never thought about doing it with dough or fimo. The first books I read on fractals suggested using a scissors, some tape, and a photo copier with a shrink setting.
