Giant Fractal Pecan Pie quote the author/baker: "The thing they don't tell you about fractals is just how sharp and dangerous they are. I mean, you think you have a pretty good grasp of the mathematical analysis but until a piece of metal with a very high perimiter to surface area ratio tears into your flesh, you're really missing intuitive appreciation for objects that lack continuous derivatives almost everywhere."

You'd have to catch me on a really good day. I'd love to say something like that.
