Tiling With Pentagons

Quote:
Joy as mathematicians discover a new type of pentagon that can cover the plane leaving no gaps and with no overlaps. It becomes only the 15th type of pentagon known that can do this, and the first discovered in 30 years

Things a little slow in Tennessee this evening, Dan?

I actually had never thought about the possibility and surely never knew there were 14 was to do it in past. So here we are learning our new thing this and every day, eh?

Slow enough to read about other folks discoverin' tileable pentagons, but not so slow as to be breakin' out the pencil and discoverin' any of my own.

Wow. Mathematicians got too much time on their hands.

Can't say I'd like to tile something with those things. My head hurts just thinking about it.
