Write that in your copybook now

Somehow I missed that fact that MIT just held a Large Number Championship between Adam Elga and devout Mafia player Agustin Rayo. Does anyone know the outcome?

(Hat tip: Sam, who also posts the classic first episode of Look Around You. I can only hope I played some small but significant role in its introduction to Michigan.)

Ps. Is it just me, or does the poster feature Morrissey punching some dude?


it's not just you
Agustin is ALWAYS Mafia!
Hello Aidan,

I read your blog often and like it very much. In fact, I'm bookmarking it. Thanks,

Who won?

What is the reference for the quotation from Russell at the top of your blog?
And the winner is:
I'm disappointed there was no mention of towers of Ackermann functions.

The quote is from Russell's intro to the Tractatus, no?
Yup, page 18-9 in my copy of the Tractutus.
Of course! I was looking for it in 'The Philosophy of Logical Atomism,' and couldn't find it. Thanks.
