Do they give you that burning feeling in your chest? or your foot maybe.
Do you feel bad for their truncation? I feel the truncation benefits their look, like a haircut.

-- Truncated icosahedron
-- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truncated_icosahedron

In geometry, the truncated icosahedron is an Archimedean solid, one of 13 convex isogonal nonprismatic solids whose faces are two or more types of regular polygons.

It has 12 regular pentagonal faces, 20 regular hexagonal faces, 60 vertices and 90 edges.

It is the Goldberg polyhedron GPV(1,1) or {5+,3}1,1, containing pentagonal and hexagonal faces.

This geometry is associated with footballs (soccer balls) typically patterned with white hexagons and black pentagons. Geodesic domes such as those whose architecture Buckminster Fuller pioneered are often based on this structure. It also corresponds to the geometry of the fullerene C60 ("buckyball") molecule.

I do prefer the truncated version, same reasons? And lesser sharp ends...

I prefer the peace of this shape
