    How does the mouse input work? I can't figure out how to find the mouse position within the window

    Thanks for this!

    get_cells was confusing as it took a cell as an argument. The comment made it clear but why not name the method something like ge_cells_surrounding(cell) or get_neighbours_of(cell)? It also seemed to do other more than getting cells as it appends cells and changed states etc. Also could have used more informative names than a,b and c.
