... I read this article on Wikipedia (credit goes to Kevin for telling me about Conway's Game of Life), and it took me to the article about Garden of Eden patterns, which in turn showed me an article about a novel, Permutation City, and in it, this amazing poem of anagrams (all of "permutation city".) If Shakespeare had been mathematically inclined, I bet he would have written something similar.
Conway's Game of Life == first really intriguing thing learned this semester.
Permutation City == next book I want to buy
