"Somebody" app by Miranda July.  instead of texting/calling your frenemy/boo/mirror twin directly, you message someone physically near them, and that person delivers the message to them verbally.  let’s make this happen, chicago!

Cosmic View: The Universe in 40 Jumps by Kees Boeke

A precursor to Powers of Ten, the universe drawn at scales from 10^26 to 10^-13 meters.  The author/illustrator was fanatic about accuracy and e.g. shows the planets of the solar system as they actually were on the day he drew them.  Same early-Cold War optimism: our smallness (and largeness!) in the scope of the universe is mustered as an argument for compassion and brotherly love.

A photocopy of a complaint form from 1998, submitted by a couple from Cleveland, who strongly disliked Bruce Nauman’s video installation “Clown Torture”. When I worked in Visitor Services at the Art Institute of Chicago back in the mid-late 1990s, it was always exciting to see what visitors complained about - particularly when their complaints concerned specific works of art and not the harsh reality that they had to check their backpack. I have erased the name, address and phone number from this form, to protect the tortured.

I FEEL THE SAME WAY

Brouwer may have been trying to meet this difficulty, in a special case of this sort, with his concept of two-one-ness, according to which the activity of consciousness brings about “the falling apart of a life-moment into two qualitatively distinct things”, of which the moment then present retains the structure of the original, so that the resulting “temporal two-ity” can be taken as a term of a new two-ity, giving rise to a temporal three-ity. Thus the process can always give rise to a new moment, which for Brouwer is the foundation of the infinity of the natural numbers.
Charles Parsons, “Mathematical Intuition”, Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 80 (1980) p. 157, on how we know there are infinitely many natural numbers.  Why the hell can no intuitionist write coherently?
