comment Mathematical habits of thought and action which would be of use to non-mathematicians
So as a mathematician, I should be paid more if I get fatter? See the recent Dilbert strips: dilbert.com/series/63

comment Too old for advanced mathematics?
You may consider asking this question on Mathematics Educators SE (which is a new site that didn't exist yet when you posted this), as matheducators.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic indicates questions about learning mathematics are on-topic there.

comment Correlation between two continuous-time stochastic processes
This question seems to general. Could you be more specific, like, give the particular processes you're interested in.

The earlier answer mathoverflow.net/a/1932/5340 already tells this... unless you know of a proof that works in ZF.

comment Analogues of P vs. NP in the history of mathematics
This is a great example, especially because Bolyai has actually expected hyperbolic geometry to be consistent, and mapped out some theorems for it, though he couldn't prove that.
