It looks to me like the only way of preventing an unkillable tar baby from forming in the upper left, is to get to that upper-left patch of tar and hit it before the tar grows even once. But that seems utterly impossible, since I have to come in from the south. What am I missing?

Whatever the solution is, though, you should have one full spawn cycle before an inaccessible tar baby is formed.

I never post here without feeling stupid afterwards. At least I know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

To put it another way, I think you're right. Thanks for the response.
