A math legend just died. He literally reinvented aspects of modern math.

Not going to class isn’t typically something good to boast about. But perhaps the late Vladimir Voevodsky is the exception to the rule. 

Voevodsky is credited with founding new fields of mathematics, such as motivic homotopy theory, and a computer tool to help check mathematical proofs, as the New York Times explored in an obituary this week. The latter was a feat that other mathematicians didn’t dare approach, but Voevodsky’s effort has overwhelmingly benefited the industry — and everyone, really — by allowing mathematicians to fact-check their work.

Friends, some great news: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend (and Luna) have adopted a small dog.

Teigen and Legend, who already have two Frenchies — Penny and Pippa — and one English bulldog — Puddy — welcomed this little nugget home Friday. And it looks like Luna is already a big fan. (Also, Luna has great posture.)

Usain Bolt's final race ended with an unexpected injury, but he's still a legend

TwitterFacebook

This wasn’t supposed to be how it ended.

What should have been a triumphant finish to a momentous career ended in injury when Usain Bolt fell to the track in the midst of his last-ever race at the IAAF World Championships in London on Saturday.

Bolt had apparently developed a cramp in his left hamstring just after taking the baton in his anchor leg of the 4×100 relay and was unable to finish.

The United Kingdom went on to win the race, and America and Japan took second and third as Bolt’s teammates helped him limp off of the track. Read more…

This is how you become the boss legend of high school, meet, Hail Boy

TwitterFacebook

Challenging Mother Nature is never a good idea. Legends have been written about arrogant humans who perished trying to defiantly piss into the wind. 

But sometimes you need to show the entire school that you’re a badass — pneumonia and skin damage be damned. 

That’s apparently what one kid recently decided to do when a massive hail storm began pelting students on campus. Instead of fleeing for cover, our unknown weather defier decided to stand in the middle of it all, hands in his pockets, without a care in the world. 

I RECORDED PEOPLE RUNNING BECAUSE OF THE RAIN BUT THIS KID WAS JUST STANDING THERE SO I ENDED UP WITH THIS GEM pic.twitter.com/Q0Ceccmrw1
