Semi-explosive rule-area with absurdly common long diehards:

### Re: Larger than Life

I've always found it rather amusing how the diagonal ships of the rule containing R100-NN-bug resemble the orthogonal ships of the moore bugs we're familiar with, and how the R100-NN-bug itself resembles a diagonal bug from familiar moore bugs.
