Trump, Flynn and immunity

[ by Charles Cameron — tweets, and how they become, for me, a problem in number theory ]

The initial question is, should I pair this:

with this:

Or this:

— or the last two with each other?

Such are the hazards of imprisonment within the DoubleQuote system — two, when three or more are available and relevant, becomes a constraint rather than a facilitation. So would any other positive integer — and god save us from the irrationsals!

    I don’t know about Flynn, but Pythagoras was definitely a victim of fake news. There’s no way in my view that he didn’t understand the square root of 2. In fact, it’s possible irrational numbers were understood long before he was born, and Pythagoras was framed for Hippasus’ apparent poor sailing skills.

    I’m happy you picked up on my little Proclus quote, Grurray! And appalled you think its Hippasus rather than the waves which had agency, however lacking in skill, in the matter of sailing đŸ˜‰
