Tiling and General Relativity

‘Strange tilings from demolition jobs that raised advanced mathematical issues the Prof was then moved to go on about at stupefying length’

A bit further down below the ‘concentrated mass as a local distortion of the space itself’ is a wonderful application of General Relativity (patented in the US patent Office as well). I loved the joke here.
