In a shocking development, I didn't find a Sashimi (is there a worse technique name?).

Yes! I'd say "Purple Cow" takes the cake.

999_Springs once named a certain wing "I Never Saw a Purple Cow I Hope I Never See One; But I Can Tell You Anyhow I'd Rather See One Than Be One."

The name was shortened to "Purple Cow" and believe it or not, it stuck! (among a certain crowd...) I think 999 Springs was joking, but with him one could never be certain...

According to Wikipedia, the ditty is from a well known 1895 poem by poet and humorist Gelett Burgess.

"Purple Cow"??? Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Edit: 999 not 99

I like it Very Happy then we could have an "almost purple cow with extension" APCE

I would rather have a purple steak than raw fish.

Nishio and Death Blossom ought to be in the discussion. As should Swordfish, Jellyfish and Squirmbag. Probably could name others as well if Sudopedia was accessible.

I really don't mind the names. They are a way of communication.

I suppose you could petition ISO and create a standards committee to standardize the names:

0-fish: naked single
1-fish: strong link
2-fish: X-wing
3-fish: swordfish
4-fish: jellyfish
etc.

Like with the metric system, it will probably still not be resolved after hundreds of years.

(Edited to change "solved cell" to "naked single".)

It's interesting how few technique names are eponymous, i.e., named after the developer ala "Sue de Coq." Surprising, in that some of our founding fathers had, shall we say, a healthy sense of self worth. Very Happy

Personally, I am highly PO'd that my naming of the Blue Blood Bug never swept into general use Exclamation
