comment Is anything known about which numbers appear in the continued fraction expansion of $\pi$?
Should "chosen uniformly at random from the reals" be "chosen uniformly at random from a real interval"? (There is no uniform distribution on the reals.)

comment Fermat surface known to have very few rational integer solutions
What do you mean by "rational integer solutions"? Any integer solution is necessarily rational; and any rational solution can immediately be converted to an integer solution.

comment Can a unit square be cut into rectangles that tile a rectangle with irrational sides?
Very nice. I'm happy with $\mathrm {AC}$; but, in consideration of the minority who are uncomfortable about it, is it essential---namely, is the theorem unprovable in $\mathrm {ZF}$?

@PietroMajer: Yes, the rectangles cannot all be congruent.
