Boring p24 (or transpulsar on figure eight) is a period24 oscillator composed of a pulsar and a figure eight.
Despite being composed of two oscillators of smaller periods (p3 and p8 respectively), it is considered nontrivial because it has two cells that are alive in one generation and dead in the other 23, and two more otherwise period8 cells that are alive in one additional generation.
Commonness
 Main article: List of common oscillators
On Catagolue, it is the most common period 24 oscillator, being more common than the similar uninteresting p24.^{[1]}
The boring p24 first appeared naturally on August 27, 2015, in a soup found by Brett Berger.^{[2]} Before this, symmetric figureeightonpulsar variants had appeared only seminaturally.^{[3]}
