Once Larry come out I want any interviewer to show them all the supposed “Larry Kisses” so they can finally reveal which are legit and which aren’t

What is that. WHAT IS THAT.

Plus what really happened in Wellington, that would be nice, thank you very much.

Proof without words - Pi

This was intended to be posted on Pi-day earlier this month, but somehow that didn’t happen.

Hope this beautiful pi gif on this sizzling Saturday puts a smile on your face and guides you through the day.

Have a good one!

NOW YOU ALL KNOW WHY I SHIP USUK.

To play chess, you must first learn how the individual pieces move. Only after these rules have entered your subconscious can your mind turn its full attention to the more creative issues of strategy, tactics, and the like. So it appears to be with mathematics. Hard work is required in the beginning to learn the fundamental rules… Then you will find that your mind can focus on the creative aspects of mathematics.
—  Daniel Solow, How to Read and Do Proofs

I had this running joke with one of my TA’s (who is in the math PhD program here at UT and is a brilliant mathematician) about how hilariously bad we both are at arithmetic. One time in office hours, I said something about a 100^2 survey region, and we both sat there for way too long before saying, “10,000?” at the same time. We were so proud of ourselves for being able to multiply 100 by 100 that we high-fived before going back to trying to prove that complex sum-of-divisors functions could not return values as larges as twice the input in Z[i]. 

So, if you still think mathematicians are people who can add and multiply or whatever, please adjust your expectations, because we’re shy about that.
