      @MythologyFreak Mythology Freak I know a spell... it involves atonal jazz and a serpinski's pyramid made of Toblerones... and writing George Hart a politely worded letter, again. Honestly though, I'd rather squash the beef with Grey before it gets started. Shape politics always gets so personal... Anyway, you don't bring your queen out early in the game.

    Hexagons frustrate me because if a flat side is pointing ahead there are two points now on the left and right of it, if the point is pointing ahead, the sides are flat lines. A square has four of the same sides, the corners are perfect ends to the sides. A triangle has three corners, again, perfect, a hexagon is symmetrical, but the sides of the plane is always different. And in 3d because of this it has to used squares to join itself together.

    So if chess has things that go diagonal and it evolves into hexagons, then how do we go diagonally? You have to me more than a chess grandmaster in order to have great accuracy.

    people have used squares because those are simple and understandable.The squares or hexagons do not exist to give you perfection based joy,they only serve the simplicity of the game.Also, hexagons exist for 3-way chess if you're interested.

    5:16 : Ice-nine is an alternative structure of water that is solid at room temperature and acts as a seed crystal upon contact with ordinary liquid water, causing that liquid water to instantly transform into more ice-nine. In the 1960s, scientists discovered a new form of water. ... Because ice-nine crystals could spontaneously convert normal water into more ice-nine, the material was dangerous—just licking it would cause all the water in a person's body to freeze solid.
