comment Are there any books that take a 'theorems as problems' approach?
@paulgarrett If I understand you correctly: I've never understood why people like this book so much either.

comment Why do roots of polynomials tend to have absolute value close to 1?
@Andrej I noticed the slight tendency of the roots to cluster near 1 and to disperse more near -1, and I'm curious if anyone can provide a statistical explanation to explain this effect. It does seem that there is a strong tendency to be nearly uniform, and this is sort of a second-order thing.

comment What are $( \infty , n)$-categories useful for?
Seems to me that $(\infty, 1)$-categories are supposed to be considered as an enrichment of the concept of just "category"; i.e. they are not higher categories so much as they are deeper categories. Then $(\infty, n)$-categories are deeper, higher categories. Do you think that ordinary higher categories (i.e. 2-categories, 3-categories, etc.) are useful? If so, then their infinity version must be even more useful.

Neither $-1$ nor 0 works, as they are contained in every field.

@downvoter if you don't like the joke, it's enough just not to laugh.
