A fractal is an extremely complex geometric form consisting of smaller copies of itself repeating across (theoretically) infinitely smaller scales, the whole a development of a disarmingly simple mathematical formula. When a fractal is fed into a computer that is also programmed to cycle the colours of the visual spectrum through the pattern, the result can be pleasantly trippy.
Wow, fractals on screen! Let's drop some acid and watch the grooviness!!!

An infinitely complex mathematical shape that most people find interesting but are utterly clueless as to how it is made.
I know how to make fractals and you don't.

A more exaggerated version of an anal fissure. Fractals are much bigger holes and look much worse. The word is generally used to make fun of people but it can also be used during medical speech, but it is highly unlikely.
A guy who just googled goatse: oh look, a fractal. why did I Google this?
