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 periods (p3 and p8 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.[1]

The uninteresting p24 first appeared naturally on January 25, 2016, in a soup found by Apple Bottom.[2]
