What do you call the 8th day of the week? A weekstretcher.

There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, those who don't, and I forget the other 8.

Computer, what's this Gemini doing in my soup?

Q1) How many Lifenthusiasts does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A1) Three, but just two can keep it in place once it's ON.

Q2) How do you keep a Lifenthusiast in suspense?

Because only in LifeWiki you can find things that are so hilariously absurd when out of context:

"When the sparks are applied again, the toad is shifted back. [...] there are really only three different types of toad suckers. [...] sparks from two parallel dragons to escort a toad at one-sixth of the speed of light."

This honestly, out of context, sounds like it's from some sort of fantasy/puzzle game. Like you have to arrange two dragon statues to make a toad move to a desired spot

Generation 5000 of the soup the pony express was first found in, excluding escaped gliders.

It is similar to test tube baby, but claws (as in claw with tail) are used to stabilize the corners.

The image to the right displays two possible stabilisations using mangoes.

The Caterpillar's construction took place over a long period of time, but it was completed on December 31, 2004.


EDIT:
...is a closed loop made of four queen bees that clean up each other's beehives.

Unix consists of two blocks eating a long barge.

It consists of a tub and four tails.

if a single cell is removed from the back end of the trailing ant, it becomes a fuse with the peculiar property that its burning reaction grows quadratically.


//Not so funny below
I had just thought about some weird (wrong?) Chinese translation,such as
两架滑翔机相撞,总共有71种不同的方式。目前还不知道三架滑翔机相撞有多少种方式。

已知的斜率固定而速度可调节的飞船只有类魔(demonoid)、卡特环彼勒(caterloopillar)和半焙马行船(half-baked knightship)这几种。

2015年发现了以下飞船的滑翔机合成反应:B29,X66,半X66轻型飞船(half-X66 with HWSS),普刹龙一号(Pushalong 1),25P3H1V0.2,30P5H2V0,30P4H2V0.4,河鲀飞船(pufferfish spaceship),以及周末人(weekender)。其中,寻找周末人的合成反应断断续续花了15年时间。

I suppose if there was like a giant log rolling down a hill, you could ram some mangoes underneath it to stop it form moving?

Remember kids: don't use a magnifying glass to burn ants, because if you burn even a cell off of it, you might end up needing bomb control over.

Come on, Adam. Reveal it to us already. We know you're Dr Seuss under a geeky internet persona.


Also, the famous xp3_co9nas0san9oczgoldlo0oldlogz1047210127401. Inspiration for the name of the main character of a game which I will probably never get around to making.

It consists of two buns facing each other with one row of dead cells between them

it crashes into the first beehive and explodes (splitting into two centuries, which ultimately stabilize into six blocks and two blinkers

and is the exact same as that of bunnies, but with one extra glider

version that uses two snackers instead of pentadecathlons is also possible

It works by using sparks from three period 4 middleweight emulators and the period 5 middleweight volcano to hassle a traffic light predecessor.

and flies can be attached to the back of each other

It works by having its front end stretch ants

Its back end can also be seen stabilizing ants in electric fence.

A chain of honey farm precursors is hassled by figure eights

a 14-glider synthesis of a variation of this oscillator that uses an aircraft carrier rather than a snake for stabilization.

that results from the acorn has 633 cells and consists of 41 blinkers (including four traffic lights)

A pattern that contains several loafers synthesizing a big object

I got this new search program. It was from this website that said it wasn't bogus. So I put it to work and a few minutes later, it found a glider synthesis for a garden of eden! Since it hadn't been discovered before, I posted it on the forums.
...Let's just say it didn't end well. Especially for my ego.

EDIT: Interesting edit feature these forums have.

The four northeast-most center cells regrow in a few generations after being destroyed by taking a bite out of something.

The exhaust festers and clings to the back of the spaceship before breaking off.

If the smoke extends past the edge of the rest of the spaceship, then it can be used to perturb other objects as the spaceship passes by. Running gliders into the smoke is often a good way to turn or duplicate them, or convert them into other objects.

Smoke is debris that is fairly long-lived but eventually dies out completely. Thus, it is basically a large spark, but the term is used especially when talking about the output from a spaceship

The prepond is a common predecessor of the pond. It is important because it makes about 54% of ponds.

Compare this with butterfly, where the beehives appear five cells further apart.

The first copperhead to emerge from the ash of a soup appeared on April 4, 2016

the title was taken by professor in July 2016, and more recently the cloverleaf interchange.

When a pattern is composed of two or more named parts, these are often said to be on or at each other

Based upon that instant dying property of the domino,

The term is rarely used in Life, because the two objects in question are simply the blinker and the pre-block.

in which case it is usually interpreted as an integral sign in siamese configuration

Its ability to eat various objects was discovered by Bill Gosper late in 1971. It only takes four generations to recover from being hit by a glider, making it the fastest-recovering and also smallest glider eater.
