Ever explained to a "working mathematician" about the undecidability of the continuum hypothesis? I bet you too had felt like this T-Rex.

P.S. You can expect more of these in the future.

To be fair, this was pretty much my reaction, when I first learned about Woodin cardinals and the stationary tower forcing :D

Strange not to the react to the appearance of elementary embeddings that are not liftings. That was a fundamental part of the original fascination with Martin's Maximum.

It wasn't the only results in set theory triggering this kind of reaction, but the first that came to mind.

One of the things I hate the most about leaving comments is that you can put a lot of effort in a well-written comment, and then there's this annoying typo which completely changes everything and you have to decide to leave a second comment or email someone to change it for you. So at least on my blog I wanted people to have the ability to edit their comments shortly after posting.
