Can regular octagon tile a plane?

Well, if you take the regular octagon on the plane, security will likely confiscate it before you can board. The consequences are 8-10 years in prison. Now if you were to successfully get the regular octagon onto the plane, would it tile the plan? This depends on what type of tile you're talking about. A wooden tile can most definitely be achieved, and I've heard rumor that marble tiles are a difficult, yet feasible task. On the other hand, a porcelain tile has yet to be done, and I assume it to be impossible, along with most mosaic and vinyl tiles. If you find differently, please let me know. * * * * * Oh, that's so funny! To answer to the question: Not on its own.
