### If I was a tweeter (is that a word?)

Since Lance is not tweeting this week, I will take up the slack. So, here is my once-in-a-while post
If I tweeted AND if tweets didn't have to be so short, here is what I would tweet:
1. Possibly the youngest blogger: a 7-year old has a blog called Life Before The Dinosaurs. It's about... life before the dinosaurs. It's serious. It's not a stunt. His mom types it in for him.
2. More money in SOLVING problems then showing they are UNSOLVABLE:
1. Decision Problem: Solvable cases of the Quantificational Formulas costs \$80.00 used, on amazon.
2. Decision Problem: Unsolvable cases of the Quantificational Formulas costs \$9.00 used, on amazon.
3. Math on TV: On NCIS, the episode Red Cell McGee and Abby argue over whether the math they are looking at is homology or cohomology. I couldn't tell who was right.
4. Other blog (not this one of course) have a problem with nasty comments. Why? See here for a possibly explanation.
5. The new Minister at my church has a math degree. I'll ask him if Jesus used the Banach-Tarski Paradox to perform the the miracle of the five loaves and two fish.
6. A use of Banach-Tarski in Norse mythology: here.
7. A play with some math themes called Completeness. Sounds interesting but I'm not going to pay \$70.00 to find out.
8. There were identical twins in my Discrete Math class. GREAT for You have n people. Two are identical twins that you cannot tell apart. How many different ways can they appear to line up? TERRIBLE for If I was to ask everyone in this room their birthday what is the probability that two of them have the same one?

1. #5 is hilarious :)))

2. "TERRIBLE for If I was to ask everyone in this room their birthday what is the probability that two of them have the same one?"

Hahaha! :)

4. I guess having fraternal twins in the class is a no-win situation.

5. Is this blog still part of the Scientific American Partner Network?

6. This blog is no longer part of the Scientific American Partner Network. I would have included that in my
IF BILL TWEETED post; however, Lance already tweeted it
on July 19:

The Computational Complexity blog is no longer part of the
Scientific American Partner Network. we are free agents once again.

See also Lance's July 5 tweet on the Scientific American Partner Network.

7. Congratulations on feeling like free agents. (July 19 Tweet). Condolences on feeling second-class. (July 5 Tweet)
