Quote of the Day

Today at the Cafe, in a post about twisted ribbons, Baez said:
The problem is that there’s not enough overlap between people who think about time reversal and antiparticles, people who think about normed division algebras, people who think about unitary group representations and Dyson’s Threefold Way, and people who think about symmetric monoidal categories with duals.
I then did my best to point him in the direction of a large group of such individuals, but of course the comment was immediately deleted, as usual. Ex stringer Urs Schreiber has also lately been doing his best to enlighten certain people, but it seems to no avail. I therefore predict another century of sinful pseudoscience before the army of physics students finally revolts against their so called teachers.
