Thought this was interesting

Not mine, hadn't seen it before.

Imagine you have a little robot that holds a pencil. Set it down on a sheet of paper and give it these instructions:
1. Move forward 3 units and turn right.
2. Move forward 1 unit and turn right.
3. Move forward 2 units and turn left.
4. Move forward 1 unit and turn left.
s. Move forward 2 units and turn right.
Repeat.
If the robot makes its turns at ' angles, it will produce this figure:
But, remarkably, if it turns at 12:)" it will draw this:

It really makes me wonder how someone figured this out...

a "Reich" angle

technically a ******** has to be tilted 90 degrees.
when upright like that its the japanese symbol for "sun"

Also backwards (counter-clockwise) swatikas were used by native americans

It really, really isn't... Where did you hear that?
User avatar #45 to #32 - arels (01/17/2013) [-]
I do hope you realize rotating a ******** 90 degrees would look exactly the same. I think you were looking for 45 degrees!
User avatar #64 to #45 - mrfourtysevenman (01/17/2013) [-]
40 degrees.
because **** standards

I guess that makes it a "Reich" angle hahahahhahahahaa.


I'm so sorry

It's not a ******** , it's the Buddhist symbol for peace, which the Nazi's stole and altered

That awkward moment when you're both wrong and it's originally a Hindu symbol.

Yeah the more I know ******** .
Both symbols are actually called ******** . (it's the name of the shape in general) One is the Nazi one and the other is the Buddhist one.

The one above is the Nazi one; the Buddist is the same except it's flipped horrizontally.
#67 to #37 - zarkaron (01/18/2013) [-]
Just thought I'd educate your stupid ass:
The word ******** is of Sanskrit origin and the symbol is one of good luck or a charm or a religious symbol (the last, among the Jains and Buddhists) that goes back to at least the Bronze Age. It appears in various parts of the ancient and modern world. Workcited: http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/ancientart/f/ ******** .htm

Holocaust was a 10 on the significance scale. What did the buddhists ever do that was as significant as the holocaust? You solve all ill will of man under the nazi flag, then you can have the swastica back, I don't think anything less is gonna make it resound as anything else to anyone that's not a pretentious **** like you.

Then by definiton, what IS a ******** ?

I don't get this. The only joke is a misunderstanding.
User avatar #14 - lordlolland (01/16/2013) [-]
So from this we can conclude that the same instructions, interpreted with different angles, can give two completely opposing meanings.
#30 to #14 - graboidzero (01/17/2013) [-]
That's beautifuly said.
#10 - Forfunaccount (01/16/2013) [-]
It works, but not by your instructions. For the David Star to work, the turning angle has to be acute, under 90 degrees, if you do a 120 degree angle, the first step would fail because you would NEED an acute angle.
Works perfectly for the Swastica at 90 degrees.
#12 to #10 - mullacllahdoow (01/16/2013) [-]
the inside of the point of the star is an acute angle (60 degrees actually) but our robot friend would have to spin 120 degrees, look
in b4 mspaint skills off the charts

Why is there 2 units after 3 units?
#60 to #49 - anonymous (01/17/2013) [-]
Refer to the content
User avatar #62 to #60 - mettallica (01/17/2013) [-]
1 unit came after 3 units.
User avatar #65 to #62 - mullacllahdoow (01/17/2013) [-]
yeah, I realised that after I posted, didn't correct it cause it doesn't really change how the turning works.
#13 to #12 - Forfunaccount (01/16/2013) [-]
Aah nice explanation, I was thinking more on the lines of only drawing 120 degree angles.
But then it just makes me think of why the robot even has to be involved.
User avatar #15 to #13 - mullacllahdoow (01/16/2013) [-]
yeah, instructions like the one in the post are a type of coding language (logo is probably the biggest) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logo_(programming_language) for drawing technical diagrams, when I was learning how to use it I imagined I was running along with a paint roller behind me so I could visualise how I had to turn.
#11 to #10 - anonymous (01/16/2013) [-]
read the instructions again moron

normally i hate nazi jokes but this is actually interesting
#70 to #8 - turtledude (01/18/2013) [-]
I literally reread that four times, trying to get the joke. Then I realized you were serious.
User avatar #7 - schnizel ONLINE (01/16/2013) [-]
What did you use to create that?
User avatar #4 - misterklass ONLINE (01/16/2013) [-]
Can someone do some science and test this and post results? I'd do it but I'm lazy and stupid.
#6 to #4 - blaque (01/16/2013) [-]
It works, just followed with my finger. I'll be using cardinal directions.

Start at the southwest star point (doesn't matter really) and move up and to the right 3 units diagonally. You are now at the topmost point of the star. You turn right 120 degrees, and are now facing southeast.

You now move 1 unit, and turn right again. You are now facing west.

You move 2 units in the direction, ending up at the northwest tip of the star. Turning left you are now facing southeast again.

You now move a single unit in this direction, and turn to the left again, facing northeast towards the topmost point of the star.

You now move 2 units to end up on the north point of the star, and turn right, facing the southeast.

From this point it is repeated again, and, while there is overlapping, it does actually make the star after repeating this process.

******* tongue my anus.

I believe the anime is called Fire Bomber. Not exactly sure though.
