### 100 is fun!

0 and 100 are the same point in the south-west corner of this diagram.
Proceed to count from 1 to 99 in an overall clockwise direction with some twists and turns.
Enjoy!  I just made this up last night!!

Nice one, John! Thanks

What do you call it?

There are 5 squares, each square has 4 sides which have 5 points each. Except the squares aren't really squares, and the sides aren't really sides.

So its a Not-quite-squari-nor-sidi-agon

My Dad thinks it looks like the floor diagram to a nursing home.
I'm not sure if the those are couches or beds.

I think it looks like lines and numbers on a piece of paper.  I guess well just have to agree to disagree.

Here's another one, I drew it so small I can't fit in all the numbers!
The monochrome *.bmp is smaller than a JPEG, but the system won't take it onto the forum.
1K vs. 4K.
Oh... Hold on... a *.PNG is even smaller, let's try that.

### Re: 100 is fun!

Here's another 100

You can visualize them as a 1x1x1 cube plus a
2x2x2 cube plus a 3x3x3 cube plus a 4x4x4 cube
and count all the blocks up and you get 100.
1 + 8 + 27 + 64 = 100
64 = 4 x 4 x 4
27 = 3 x 3 x 3
8 = 2 x 2 x 2
1 = 1 x 1 x 1
