Rough Fractal Patterns

A fractal is generally "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole"

There are Paradoxical Fractal Patterns In nature and Human behavior i.e. lattice patterns that occur naturally when different currents run cross wise in the same system e.g. in large bodies of water when tide shifts, certain crisscrossing pie crusts, and in certain moments like those described below:


The sommelier recommends a 1997 white Bordeaux from the wine list and describes it as having "broad shoulders and being "minerally" (which applies equally to a coal miner as a fine wine).

Upon leaving THE RESTAURANT:

When dinner is at an upscale restaurant is over you walk to the front where your parties coats are already held open for you by men in tuxes (for the ladies) and women (for the gents) wearing festively gay and dare I say, sexy, masks (a fun thing you will probably never do again - have your coat put on for you by a very attractive young woman wearing a mask) and then you go out into the 5 below zero wind chill factor tundral night...


Cell phone falls out of your coat pocket. After a great deal of effort and some real shoulder, elbow, wrist, leg and feet contortions, to retrieve it from way deep in the seat well of the car where it had fallen (quite exasperating made worse by imaginary rehearsals of the necessary future conversations you are going to have to have at the Toyota dealer asking them to remove the seat to retrieve the cell phone) you give up only to realize that if you move the car seat full forward you could simply grab the phone.
