    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.

    My only retort. You never showed the edge of that "room" you were trying to tile, or the whole game board. Both would have a bunch of weird little jagged angles. Putting up walls in said room with JUST hexagons would leave you with weird krimpy walls. Try painting that. The game board would have a bunch of knobby hexagons around the peripherals which completely changes all strategy for everything. "Alright... we'll call it a draw" -the black knight

    I’ve been replaying the Orre Pokemon games lately. There aren’t any hexagons involved (or anything involving the number six), but the Purify Chamber in XD kind of reminds me of the wax/honey problem. Regular Pokemon are the wax, and Shadow Pokemon are the honey (which is both stored inside of and can be converted to “wax”). The way that the four regs are arranged around the Shadow even kind of LOOKS like it.
