Tail (sometimes referred to as L or J) is a tetromino and predecessor of the beehive. It can often be attached to still lifes to create a larger still life. Even more important are the ways in which it may be attached to a marginally stable object of any kind to obtain overall stability while suppresing (or possibly exploiting) its own spark.
