(Young) Math students of the world, when you don't have any idea of how to solve a problem, you can try to:

- make a drawing in order to better understand what's happening

- try to solve a simpler instance of the problem in order to see if what you are trying to prove is indeed true, why, and what could possibly be wrong in the complicated case

These are very easy advises that essentially nobody follows 🙄

It turns out rice fields are fields where rice grows.

I have been rewatching the presentations from last year's Timelord meeting. There is so much that I have missed in the first run.

Why can't we just record every scientific conference and make the videos available to the general public? This would make science so much more accessible, not just to the laymen, but to scientists as well!
