"The future is there, looking back at us. Trying to make sense of the fiction we will have become. And from where they are, the past behind us will look nothing at all like the past we imagine behind us now." - W. Gibson's Pattern Recognition

Whenever mathematicians invoke theorems, I always picture them as anime characters calling out their attacks in a fight.

Dedekinnnndddd CUT! (slices across the real line)

Frobenius! Automorphism! (transforms into a car)

Taaaate... Shafareviiich... GROUP! (summons a swarm of sharp geometric shurikens)

RIEMAAAAANNNN!!! HYPOTHESISSSSS!! (ultimate attack, unblockable, ignores all defenses, huge mushroom cloud leaving behind a huge smouldering crater)


Stolen from reddit but fixed for rhythm:

Trumpty Dumpty promised a wall,
Trumpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the golf courses and all the white men,
Couldn't Make America Great [once] Again;

Trumpty Dumpty never finished his wall,
Trumpty Dumpty lost the election this fall,
All the bad lawyers and all the Yes-men,
Couldn't get Trumpty elected again.

From now until 12/1, dont believe anything - ANYTHING - you see on social media unless you know the person offline, or you are certain who it is and can point the person out in a crowd. Do not let the Russians trick you into believing garbage. Do not trust ANYTHING on Facebook.

We really need to stop putting people on pedestals. For one thing, they could fall.

Every time you say "pog" this is what comes to mind.

Stop it. Stop making up stupid words when we already have perfectly fine words for that already.


If Trump doesn't want a crooked election, he has an easy solution available: don't run for reelection!

From the announcement:

The load test will be accessible on July 31st 2pm UTC for invited players and will end on August 3rd 2pm UTC for those players as well.
