Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Physicists and mathematicians   The former tend to have their heroes, mathematicians not. Why? We have a bunch. Some have Erdös or the like, for me of course it's De Finetti. Amen. I have no idea why he's called a subjectivist, while he showed that, objectively, Kolmogorov's "axioms" don't stand.

Re: A Music Game II for 2009

I know they are lovely, just not my most favourite band. John Mayers doing Ain't no sunshite (when she's gone): https://youtu.be/ktyhXq00RxQ?t=88 He stops trying to sing at 1:20.

Boris Johnson considering enforcing 'stricter' rules on mandatory face masks in shops

He can enforce what he wants, people will do what they want, and there's no one to stop them. I had to use public transport last week several times - I counted between 20-30% of passengers without a mask.
