Fractal Pecan Pie

This quote from http://www.instructables.com/id/giant-fractal-pecan-pie/ reminded me of eub:
the thing they don't tell you about fractals is just how sharp and dangerous they are. i mean, you think you have a pretty good grasp of the mathematical analysis but until a piece of metal with a very high perimiter to surface area ratio tears into your flesh, you're really missing intuitive appreciation for objects that lack continuous derivatives almost everywhere.
