Perhaps I am just a bit narrow minded, but when I read this article in The Atlantic all I could think about was how embarassingly incorrectly the author used the terms “irrational numbers” and “real numbers”. It was like going to a Harry Potter movie and having your three year old daughter void her bladder on your lap. Suddenly you can no longer think about the movie, only about where the nearest towel selling store is1. Except in this case, it was if the script writer had sent the child.
Sometimes I am just not as tolerant of non-geeks as I should be.
1 This is why I have never seen a complete Harry Potter movie.
