non mathematicians: i hate math because i hate numbers

me, a mathematician: what the frick is a number

@dankwraith numbers? i haven't heard that name in years

@extinct @dankwraith fun to think about the fact that the lady in the numberwang sketches is now an Oscar winner

@dankwraith I used to think it's the abstract representation of a quantifiable element, but it is so wierd to think that stuff can be quantified...

@dankwraith Oh that's easy. "Zero" is a number, and every number has a "successor" which is a number, and two numbers are the same if and only if their successors are the same, and Zero is the only number that's not the successor of any number.
