//Logic period 7 Rose: Kline talks about ancient Greece in all of chapter 1, and he skips all the way to 16th century Europe. He is clearly biased toward European philosophers. //Later Rose: The Greeks denoted numbers by segment lengths. They couldn't even multiply 4 things together because they could only imagine 3 dimensions. Meanwhile, other civilizations like the Chinese and Indians took numbers very seriously. Joseph: There are other civilizations!?

Rose: Pythagoras had this cult where they believed that "all is number". So, when one of his disciples showed that the diagonal of a square of side length 1 can't be expressed as the ratio of whole numbers, he threw him off a boat so that the proof wouldn't get out. Joseph (quietly): Project Polyhedra is also a cult

//Shadows are in the back of the room Pham: You all in the back! Tell me what is hydrogen peroxide! //embarrassed giggles Pham: You all from Takoma amirite? You know why I know this? Class: They're Asian? Pham: No! Why I know they from Takoma? Pham: OK. You see, people from Takoma are more book-oriented. They don' go outside or play the sports. When you get cut, you use hydrogen peroxide to disinfect it! Joseph: But can't they get papercuts?
Ozzie: The British are called Limeys because they ate limes to ward off scurvy. The French are called Frogs for the same reason. Because they ate limes... No, it's really because they ate frogs. //Later, Joseph is bugging Ozzie about work. Ozzie: Patience [with a French accent]. Joseph: Is that "patience" in Frog?
