Just Friends is a rule created by David Bell, and possibly the first ever non-totalistic rule considered. It normally stabilizes into a maze-like structure consisting of lines and oscillators with escaping 3-cell spaceships.
Just Friends contains an infinite number of still lives, some puffers and rakes, and many spaceships and oscillators, although no gun has been discovered yet.
Just Friends has an infinite number of still lifes because any straight and crooked (though not curved) line is a still life. All still lifes are lines, or stabilizations of lines.
