    I have discovered a remarkable proof of this theorem, which this margin is too small to contain.

    "The internet is a medium because anything well done in it is rare."
    Re-arranged and modernized version of a quip by Fred Waring (if true).

    PS: er... what is a "STEM" quote?

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
      what is a "STEM" quote?

      A quote related to STEM.

        Thank you. So my citation fits, I guess.

        perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

      You saved me asking...I too have never come across that acronym!

    I used to say "Give me a fulcrum and I shall move it." As I was a young anarchist those times, it was more a political statement than STEM, though.

    I only recently found out that the M is supposed to stand for mathematics; I'd always figured it was medicine and that mathematics was included implicitly as the foundation for all the others.

      > and that mathematics was included implicitly as the foundation for all the others.

      From my experience this would exclude medicine.

      PS: FWIW the corresponding German term is MINT

      • Mathematics
      • "Informatik" ( = Computer Science)
      • Natural Sciences
      • Technology

      I mostly hear it in connection with phrases like "I always wished my child would go study at a MINT faculty..."

        There is some mathematics directly involved in medicine, such as calculating doses based on patient weight.

        But it's mostly indirect. Medicine is based on biology. Biology is based on organic chemistry. Chemistry is the study of the effects of physics on atoms. And physics is maths using energy and matter instead of numbers.

      Which Spartacus ... the one from Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics? ;)

    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      STEM-A!: Science, Tech, Engineering, Mathematics and Accidents

      from your citation:

      that radio waves would not follow the curvature of the earth, as Marconi believed.

        Like many scientific discoveries, surely?
