It's "BANACH TARSKI BANACH TARSKI"...

Fucking mathematicians. They come up with formal systems and then complain when they don't make sense.

Also, that the notion of area wasn't formalized until 1901 (and wasn't proved consistent until 1979) really pisses me off.

I. Everything is at its Acme-

especially the art of making one's way in the world. There is more required nowadays to make a single wise man than formerly to make Seven Sages, and more is needed nowadays to deal with a single person than was required with a whole people in former times.

After several years of hibernating in my parent's garage, I dug my bike out and brought it to the local repair shop for a much needed tune-up. They quickly informed me that my 14 year-old U-lock was not going cut it on the mean streets of New York and then demonstrated by easily opening it with a regular Bic pen.

So I needed a new lock. The recommended approach is to use at least two, one to secure both wheels to the frame and another to secure the frame to a post—which doesn't even cover the seat.

What about your fork? ZOMG!

The true test is always on the street. After a night of being locked to parking sign on a dark street off Houston, I found the bike with both wheels and the seat exactly where I left if it. The handle bars, however, were gone.

Ben?

I love the dangling participle because it's entirely plausible.

It's rideable. Should probably get a bushing kit for the fork though.

That's because the video is a saveable but not linkable streaming wmv. And it's mostly how to assemble/use it.

In Mr. Serra’s case you can also call it democratic art because it sticks to pure form that requires no previous
expertise to grasp. There’s no coy narrative, no insider joke or historical allusion or meta-art theme. There’s none
of what Mr. Serra disdainfully calls, in the show’s catalog, “post-Pop Surrealism,” by which he lumps together all
contemporary art that leans for a crutch on language and Duchamp.
