word for the day: vexillology

via scalzi.

This picture of a sheet bend is the flag of the vexillology association. I used to know how to bend sheets. I remember it is a nautical knot. My scoutmaster, a man I loved a lot, had been a merchant marine. Something I don't know much about is topology. I'm guessing a sheet bend has interesting topology. The best topology blogging i've run into today was at boingboing, about hexaflexagons, or are they flexahexagons?
