You didn't include the option "toilet paper".

Being a folder is way better than being a scruncher.

Re: Origami

I think it is "mathematical art", but how do I vote for both?

I guess I could set up another account and vote for both.

I could also comment on my own posts to make it seem like some on else agrees with me.

I wonder how many people actually do that.

Bahaha. Well you guys have to admit, some of those origami from the TED video were pretty amazing. They made a mountain goat standing on a rock. Both the rock and the goat looked like mini-statues. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that possible with Origami; the best I had ever seen are those dragon Origami they have at Chinese restaurants. :tongue:

I will be sure that we have an origami Sorry! to replace you when you are gone, in respectful memory.

Re: Origami

I had to bail part-way through the video, but will return to it soon.
Regardless, I consider origami to be art that is based upon mathematical principles. Most art is, if you look at it logically. As a for-instance, Asimov put forth a simple principle for making music that is sure to please human sensibilities.
