I have another blog that doesn't suck.
In Serbian, Croatian, and other Slavic languages, srp (or ср̑п) means a sickle. And sȑpskī (ср̏пскӣ) means the Serbs or the Serbian language.
But it's Croatia, not Serbia, that is actually sickle-shaped.
Therapist: You're a very judgmental person.
Me: That's because is good to be judgmental
Me: Most people should be more judgmental actually
Me: I don't know what the fuck is wrong with them all
According to Ozy Brennan, quoting from I'm Perfect, You're Doomed:
Isn't that curious? The U.S. federal court system does it the other way around: there are 13 “circuits”, each of which is divided into “districts”. For example, the Third Circuit comprises the District of Delaware, the District of New Jersey, and three districts in Pennsylvania.
What do you suppose it means? Coincidence?? Conspiracy??¿?

Going down to the basement today I realized that this could actually be reasoned out, maybe. Every finite field has the form !!GF(p^n)!! for some prime !!p!! and some number !!n!!. There is not much to distinguish finite fields, they are all pretty much the same. Except maybe you could distinguish the !!n=1!! cases from the !!n>1!! cases, those are a little different.
Aha, but if you consider the !!n=0!! case, the answer becomes clear.
I don't know why a voice in my head kept demanding to know what was the worst finite field. But I couldn't stop thinking about it, until I realized the answer: It's clearly !!GF(1)!!.
Select !!x, y, !! and !!z!! uniformly at random. Then discard the selection and start over unless !!x^2+y^2+z^2=1!!.
