LWSS on HWSS 1 has joined the "not just once" crowd. Here's its second occurrence:

Code: Select all

```
#C [[ ZOOM 8 Y -10 ]]
x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3/S23

bboooooooobboobb$

bobobbboobboooob$
booobbbboooobobo$
bbooooboooobbooo!
```

I bet these reactions happen about 10 times as often as we observe them, and usually just crash back into the soup.

Edit: also in the "Not just once" crowd, the fox:

Code: Select all

```
#C [[ ZOOM 7 ]]
x = 40, y = 24, rule = B3/S23

Edit: Also a "why not" from asymmetry gives a reduced synthesis. The wiki says 27, this is at most 22 (the two gliders from a distance are my 5-minute-attempt at reducing the clutter but are by no means optimal).

Code: Select all

```

Edit: Also another *WSS on *WSS, this time LWSS on MWSS 1:

Code: Select all

```
#C [[ ZOOM 5 ]]

Base reaction for the LWSS on MWSS 1: R + G + Block + junk:

Code: Select all

```
#C [[ ZOOM 7 ]]
