@jordyd @nonphatic i remember my prof was saying how it took forever for people to get substitution right but now it seems pretty trivial

*cough* dynamic scope *cough*

@iitalics @nonphatic This is not really related but I’m tired so now it is. Take a look at this spicy quote

@jordyd @iitalics He's one to speak, I remember downloading Hindley's and Milner's papers on this and Hindley's was incomprehensible
Then again I guess his background was more logic

@nonphatic @iitalics You ever think about how cool the name “Tarksi” is

@jordyd @iitalics names ranked from coolest to least cool:

@jordyd @iitalics omg Tarski wasn't even his original last name
"In 1923, Alfred Teitelbaum and his brother Wacław changed their surname to "Tarski"."
I have to say I like Tarski a lot more than Teitelbaum
