Mathematical surprises, a blog article by Dave Richeson. Very interesting list. I don't know how it is with you ( fellow math students ) but I often have the feeling that I know absolutely nothing about mathematics. Like today for example, even though I understood about 15 or so topics on the list of 23. Strange. - Godels incompleteness theorems ( suprise #1 and I agree ) are a major topic of the M381 Number Theory / Logic course. I am definitely looking forward to that course! - I found this article because I subscribed to some twitter accounts of mathematicians. I already was but I am now even more convinced that Twitter does have a function.
