### 9/26/07 The Tits Group

So, uh, you know how sometimes you, uh, just stumble across certain types of websites... and, uh, they're not quite what you expect? Well, yeah.... I "stumbled" across The Tits Group. What did I find? Not tits, that's for sure.

The Tits group can be defined in terms of generators and relations by:

$a^2 = b^3 = \left(ab\right)^\left\{13\right\} = \left[a, b\right]^5 = \left[a,$bab]^4 = (ababababab^{-1})^6 = 1

You know, women and their tits can many times be confusing. I think there may be some sort of correlation here. Maybe they should add a tits related conjecture to the Millennium Problem Prize list. Since that cooped up Russian guy solved the Poincare Conjecture last year they could easily add one more. Like some sort of formula to give us all a clear understanding when it's ok to 1) talk about 2) look at 3) touch... and on and on. It's all very, very confusing. In comparison, the Riemann Hypothesis appears to be a piece of cake.

Old Nintendo stuff isn't going away anytime soon. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Retro trends tend to come around 21-24 years after the original. Which leaves us (boop boop beep beep) only 7 or so more years before Pearl Jam and flannels are back in style.
