Its recursive....  It's like the G in GNU.
Programmers / mathematicians like things that are recursive.
Gnu is a recursive acronym = Gnu Not UNIX.   
If at first you don't find Australia keep digging.

Mandelbrot discovered fractals that are self similar, i.e. no matter how much you zoom, it still has the same sort of patterns. So if you zoom into the 'B' of his name, you find the same pattern repeating, i.e. the whole name. Zoom in to the new 'B', and you find the same.

Better articulated here:

ad infinitum.

P.S. Sorry, after posting I noticed this was the silly pics thread!, not the joke thread.  :-[ My bad.

Well I guess it's worth trying almost anything to stave off the sheer tedium of football.
Not sure about this though. :-\

It would be funny, were it not for the fact that it has been photoshopped to copy the T from end to beginning (probably by a guardian reader)

Well spotted Chris, never noticed that they didn't fill in the background to the transposition (amateur mistake) , still funny though. :) (as long as it doesn't affect the vote next Thursday!)
