Uninteresting p24 (or cis-pulsar on figure eight) is a period-24 oscillator composed of a pulsar and a figure eight.
Despite being composed of two oscillators of smaller period (3 and 8 respectively), it is considered non-trivial because it has two cells that are alive in one generation and dead in the other 23, and two more otherwise period-8 cells that are alive in one additional generation.
On Catagolue, it is the second most common period 24 oscillator, being less common than the similar boring p24.
The uninteresting p24 first appeared naturally on January 25, 2016, in a soup found by Apple Bottom.
