I have a terrible confession to make, which has been weighing heavily on my soul since I was 14. Okay. Here goes. My parents had a Jim Morrison poster stashed away in a closet somewhere, and until I was 14 I thought that was Jimi Hendrix. Phew. Thanks for giving me this space to get that out.

My dad used to tell me Ramanujan's story as one of the great mathematical tragedies, and a warning against polished rice.

Did everyone already finish talking about how Paul resembles The Wire's Tommy Carcetti? Am I too late?
Aug 26, 2015 Fistique commented on Lawrence Lessig Wants to Hack the Presidency.
wow, it's like--he hasn't considered the practical effect of how he's gonna do this bill when he becomes president. what a mook this prof is.

Almost as though this is a SYMBOLIC RUN meant to COMMUNICATE A MESSAGE DURING THE ELECTIONS. But he couldn't have intended that, because that's smart, and I've heard about him and from the facts I've taken in, he seems dumb and reactionary. It's probably me who is the smart one.
