Sometimes you check just a few examples and decide something is always true. But sometimes even 9.8 × 10⁴² examples is not enough!!!@gregeganSF and I came up with this shocker here on Twitter. To see what's really going on, visit my blog:https://t.co/Yw0S0Iyyx9 pic.twitter.com/1FThY9skeZ

Check out Tai-Danae Bradley's new short book "What is Applied Category Theory?" It's free, it's friendly, it's fun. It explains the big ideas, then applies them to chemistry and linguistics.

You can follow her here on Twitter: she's @math3ma.https://t.co/nx5mbQ1nGJ

Friends, @AstroKatie and I wrote a paper! We argue that if extra dimensions exist they must be pretty small, otherwise collisions between ultra-high energy cosmic rays could form tiny black holes whose evaporation might set off a catastrophic vaccum decay.https://t.co/H09L1isAwv

All power to Professor Ford. I believe her. I know what she is undertaking by doing this, and there is no way we can ever repay her for the hit she is taking. I know how hard it is to watch a man who has done things like this, just rising and rising.https://t.co/leY6SdV2mW

Interesante el post de hoy de @gllobet en @nadaesgratis sobre viviendas turísticas y precios de alquileres. Como siempre, las respuestas fáciles no son necesariamente ciertas, hay algunos indicios de posibles efectos, pero haría falta estudiar más https://t.co/zTBxJgb5nT
