  1. From the submitter: “The head is an octopus from Origami Omnibus Creative Origami (corrected 2008.01.09) by Kunihiko Kasahara. The body is a dragon from Origami to Astonish and Amuse, by Jeremy Shafer.” Way awesome.

  2. awesome beyond words!

  3. This is amazingly great…not to mention creative! Thanks!

  4. Whoah. *Covet*.

  5. That’s super special awesome. You really like the whole non-euclidean joke don’t you Xolotl?

  6. If by that you mean that I’ve posted three macros involving the term “non-euclidean” over the course of six months, then yes. :)

    I suppose it is one of my favorite themes, though.

  7. So, I guess you’re not using A4 paper to fold that thing?

  8. ‘All at once the question became academic- a situation the old man dreaded, since he was not an academic type. With a squeal of splintering wood, the roof lifted from the walls, wrenched up and back by a immense fog-wreathed reptilian-looking claw. The old man bolted for the front door.
    A second claw reached down and lifted him high into the misty gloom. Two bilious green lights became visible in the fog above him. As he rose higher and higher, he realized that they were terrible eyes, located in the midst of a huge octopuslike head fringed with dangling, writing tentacles. By what power those orbs had picked him out of the fog, he had no idea. But he knew he was dealing with something far beyond his ken, something unguessably eldritch and cacodaemonical and non-Euclidean.
    “So, you think I’m non-Euclidean, huh?” the monstrosity boomed.
    “Well, sir…” the storekeeper squeaked.
    “Do you even know what non-Euclidean means?”
    “Doesn’t it have to do with the geometry of curved surfaces?”
    “Yeah.”
    “Well, unless I’m mistaken, sir, you’re all made up of curved surfaces. Particularly that octopuslike head of yours. And if we drew triangles on you, and computed the angles, we’d get non-Euclidean results.”
    “Well, so what? That means you’re basically non-Euclidean too.”
    “Very true, sir. But I was still quite correct in applying the word to you.”
    “What is this, flyspeck? I thought you weren’t an academic type?” ‘

    - Mark E. Rogers, “The Sword Of Samurai Cat”

    Dunno, mentions of non-Euclidean anything always makes me think of this…

  9. Slight mistake, the octopus head is Creative Origami by Kunihiko Kasahara. Wrong book, same author. I have too many books.
