The honeybit reaction is an elegant destructive-read memory cell used by Brice Due in his metapixel. It involves a glider colliding with a beehive (hence the name "honeybit"), that converts it to a block and pond. The block and pond can then be hit with a LWSS that converts the block and pond back to a beehive in the exact same location!

As a HWSS eater

There is a possibly more elegant reaction with the block and pond that eats a HWSS by converting the block and pond to a beehive and glider, which then triggers the honeybit reaction!
