BR 's Fractal Worlds
If you have never checked out Fractals and or Chaos Theory you are

Play the Chaos Game
Pick a random starting point.
Now randomly pick A, B, or C.
Lets say you picked B.
Put a dot half way between your starting point and the B.
Randomly pick again and do the same thing.
Put a dot half way between your new dot and A, B, or C.
You might think that after 100's of times doing this you would end up with a filled in triangle.
BUT YOU DO NOT
You end up with a Fractal triangle.
