We will investigate interaction between algebraic geometry and homotopy theory by considering an example of a particularly interesting algebraic variety, which has all possible singularities, and yet turns out to have a surprisingly simple homotopy type. Based on joint work with Marc Hoyois, Joachim Jelisiejew, Denis Nardin and Burt Totaro.
