//Logic, proving that the rationals are countable //About 25% of the class is asleep Rose: All asleep people wake up!! Rose: Wait, actually sleep for 30 more seconds because I have to draw this annoying chart on the board
//Logic Rose: Don't ever whisper something to me quietly just before I'm about to say "Alright". Like, don't quietly ask "can I take all your money", because then I'll say something like "Good good good!".
Rose: Eli tweeted me about his propositional logic helper at 3 AM. It's hilarious how that's the way he communicates. //pause Rose: Well, it's probably the fastest method of communication with me.
Rose: Over thanksgiving break I was listening to this podcast that was named, "Archimedes good, Galileo bad". The entire podcast was about how Galileo was not as smart as his contemporaries. Like, at the time there was this famous problem, finding the area under a cycloid. It's like 3. He mailed this to all his friends like Descartes. And Descartes, in his usual arrogant manner, was like "Just recently... I mean just yesterday... well actually earlier this morning, I received this problem in the mail, and after just an hour, I have solved it completely; it really wasn't that hard". But Galileo couldn't do it. He tried to cut out pieces of paper and weigh them accurately... Class (mumbling): Calc R&E... Rose: Yeah, like Calc R&E, and he got pretty close to 3, and he said that, but he was like "The answer is fairly close to 3, although from experimental verification, the answer seems to be slightly greater than 3". Basically, Galileo was not that smart as our history textbooks make him out to be.

//Answering a question Rose: You can read the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. You get 5 minutes of pleasure for 1 minute of reading. //Later Rose: I do not recommend reading Kant's original works. You get 0.01 minutes of pleasure for 1 minute of reading.
