I suppose so, but we can call it GMOflakes for short

Should we make a thread?

These two similar objects suggest an eater:

Code: Select all

```
x = 22, y = 9, rule = B34c6n/S2-n3-ck4cijqtwy5y6n

In fact, with a suitable object, the former may work:

Code: Select all

```
x = 10, y = 10, rule = B34c6n/S2-n3-ck4cijqtwy5y6n
