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

The vertices of this 4-dimensional shape are the quaternions

1, -1, i, -i, j, -j, k, -k

It's a 4d analogue of the regular octahedron!

These 8 points also form a group: the "quaternion group". And it's one of the most commutative of noncommutative groups!

BTW, the likely answer to “why did she only come forward now?” is “because her fear that a rapist would be on the Supreme Court outweighed her fear of being attacked for her story.”

Is the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics consistent? Frauchiger and Renner's claim that it isn't, has now been published! There's been a lot of debate in the foundations community about the result for awhile, and initially, I believed the result was essentially 1/4 https://t.co/tZHT3EgMik

🔭 Ellen Harding Baker was born 100 years before women could graduate from @Cambridge_Uni and @Harvard. She made this quilt at the age of 29 and used it to teach astronomy around Iowa. https://t.co/VZgqFwqwYc #womeninSTEM https://t.co/jcoxppAA6z

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

So when you see this question, see:
The ways Black people have been traditionally excluded from being seen as epistemic authorities

Not as an attack on a nice white lady who needs protection from an angry Black horde https://t.co/atzmLdiQwZ
