I had a dream (in several closely related parts) last night in which I had been asked by a local high school math teacher to give a talk to her most advanced math class. In the first part of the dream, I was talking about various things in the history of math, but in detail that few high school kids...

One time when I was a teen in Boy Scouts, we were going door to door selling something as a fund raiser. We went out in pairs. One of my neighbors and I were working together. At one house with a full yard encircling the house (unusual in that town), there was a dog that was acting very ferociously....

Pros:

I remind you of your grandfather
I'm easy to shop for -- just ask your grandfather what he would like from his girlfriend.
No whirlwind romance -- more like a gentle breeze.

Cons:

No. You can't wear my hat.

Imagine what it would have been like today if people reacted to polio vaccines in the 50s and 60s like they react to covid vaccines in the 2020s.

Trump is about the only thing that could make me want to defend Facebook.

I dreamed last night that I was living back in my college town. I'd ride bicycles around, and sit in on math classes. The odd thing was that I had enough money to live normally, but I didn't have an apartment or house. When I needed a shower, I'd go over to an old friend's house and take it there or...

I went to a funeral service on Sunday. The woman who died had been a Beatles fan since the time when they began to grow famous. So two of the songs in the funeral, played on a pipe organ, and sang by those of us in attendance were "Let It Be" and "Here Comes the Sun". I had never...

I once told someone he was so big he should be a football player. It turned out that he had been a starter at a major university since he was a freshman. It didn't work out too good, though, since the team didn't have a very good record and he thought I was criticizing him.

Asking for IQ could be counterproductive. Some of the most brilliant people I've known are very odd people. It wouldn't be out of the question for employers to reject those with very high IQ's in favor of those with above average, but really high. Plus a great many people would lie about it -- like ...

I had a strange dream in which I pulled up to the back door of my office, got out of the car, and there was an old gentlemen sitting in a chair at a table by the back door and holding an enormous syringe. He looked like Colonel Sanders and was wearing a white suit. The conversation went something li...

I went into a restaurant to meet a woman I know about 11:30 am. Nothing romantic -- just old friends and she said she had some questions for me. So I'm shown to the back dining room where she is waiting. We talk a little while and then I notice that she is no longer there. I thought she just went to...

I had a dream that I was suffering from some medical issue and my doctor referred me to a specialist in some town in China for further testing. In the dream, the only doctors in the world that performed that test practiced only in that town. So I went. Upon arrival, it was extremely crowded and nobo...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but for a blockchain, there has to be ample reason for there to be miners out there on that blockchain. There has to be some kind of payout for them to spend their costly resources on doing that mining. A great many of the problems for which some people think it is the solu...

Mine are a combination of never being completely certain of anything, and extending the principle of charity towards others until they give me reason not to. I'm quite certain about a number of things in mathematics. That includes that there are mathematical statements that can be neither proven no...

Just because those dumb inbreds didn't succeed hardly means it wasn't a legitimate attempt at an insurrection in DC. Make that "an attempt at an insurrection" and I will agree. After all, they were there to overthrow the election. But, "a legitimate attempt at an insurrection" k...
