Hmm yes sad news today as I learned that Benoît Mandelbrot passed away on 14th October 2010. He was responsible for unravelling the mysteries of Fractal Geometry, which on the one hand began making it possible to explain why no two leopards have the same spot pattern and on the other hand made it possible for infinite fractal drawings to exist (using pretty much the same equation).

Rest In Peace and Many Thanks of behalf of humanity!
