Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds
are also known as "rotor clouds" and their spiraling pattern is the effect of a cloud generating a billowing wave pattern, which is a very rare occurrence. They happen when there is a severe vertical shear between two air streams, producing the upper-level winds to blow faster than the lower-level winds. Images © WSLS 10, Dave Throup, Vivian Knezevich

I fully understand that the prevalence of “american pentagon” as a search string is due to the need to specify that one is looking for information about the building, not the geometric shape, but I’m not gonna lie, when I saw the phrase pop up as a suggested search term my first thought was “well, now there’s a dimension of non-SI measurement which I had not heretofore considered”.

Ah yes, the default rhombicosidodecahedron. A noble beast, threatened but not extinct. Won't you adopt one for your avatar?

Aren't you the guy who wrote about the two gay angles trying to adopt a problem child?
It's been a while since I did any geometry. I'm afraid I no longer remember if the gay angles are the ones above or below 180°.

dissection of a double pentagon into a skewed double pentagon (patterned after a diagram in a diana davis paper) by cutting along the indicated lines.
these are actually descriptions of a non-euclidean surface: colored edges follow portal rules, if you go in one side you come out the other side of the same color.
this example is significant because it combines two important properties:
though it is not immediately obvious, both of these arrangements describe the exact same surface
each arrangement can be obtained from the other by applying a particularly simple geometric transformation (called a skew transformation, for reasons that are probably visually apparent)
