From nearly 13,000 datapoints of cities, my program found 2460 sets of 3 that each form an equilateral right triangle to (using my earth-is-a-perfect-sphere assumption) within 9 nmi of accuracy.
Here is Triangle #2450, noteable for being one of two that use my hometown as it's starting-point, plotted in SkyVector. A full-scale, and three zoom-ins of the vertices to show they are, in fact, right angles (I kept the navlog on each screenshot so you know I didn't cheat).
The actualy-calculated triangle's second point in Brazil had to be shifted a couple miles to the nearest airport from that nearby yellow blotch
I'll update the program to use a database of airports, and run it on that so I don't have this problem in the future.
Non-euclidean geometry is fun!

The fact that you are effectively being denied permission to look plain or the non-scary kind of ugly and still get to see yourself, like, anywhere, really McSucks. I try to address this in my own visual works but I'm just one person, and I get so tired sometimes.
I don't want to have to be somebody's sex object to exist. My art shouldn't have to, either.
