In case you have no idea what this is about, here's a website which explains what the Ulam Spiral is and some ways of visualizing it -


  1. "Do whatever you want with them."

    I printed them out & sautéed them in walnut oil. They were kind of tasteless, though the eerie diagonals were chewy. I figure Ulam discovered a new kind of dietary fiber.

  3. I find some of the diagonals are a bit too dense and can get stuck between my teeth
