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

Being a folder is way better than being a scruncher.

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.

prepare to be eliminated
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 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.
