Now that’s an ominous sounding ending line I wish I hadn’t read. No promises on being able to stop at that point in the story!
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I don’t eat apples.
That was a nice and everyday emergency. Poor professor!
I suspect that was another glimpse on the backstory of why the professor was so worried about Root… I’m sensing some real drama here
You don’t have to peel them (at least not with a Japanese knife)!
I was taught a long time ago that it is even healthier if you don’t peel them, but I did not know that this wisdom extended so far
So, err, I’m a bit late, but this week features the twin prime conjecture and I just had to comment on it, since it’s one of those conjectures that I keep track of. In particular it has gotten a lot progress in recent years, a paper from 2014 showing for instance that there are infinitely many primes separated by at most 246.
I had to google the exact number and found this page which gives a nice summary of the progress on the conjecture. I was also sad to see that one of the fun results is from 1976, and thus 博士 just missed it
