So, as you can see from my “Current Music,” a Bach Violin Concerto is being played on the radio. I don’t believe it though. My father has practiced and performed that piece countless times on the harpsichord. Admittedly, he tells his audience in his performances that it was originally for the violin, but I have never quite been able to believe that. I guess we (or at least I) tend to rely on memory and experiences much more than words that are not supported by hard evidence.
I finally got to something nonobvious (at least to me) in my study of algebraic number theory. The Eisenstein Irreducibility Criterion is really neat.
Why does boredom cause people (or maybe just me) to be so unproductive? I would think that a bored person would try to do something so as not to be so bored.
