Greatest Moment

We just had the greatest moment of the summer school, and I doubt it will be topped. Mark Green is giving lectures and defines hypercohomology, and then mentions the musical “The Sound of Music” and quotes from it:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Then he points out that this goes on for several more verses and “The point is, hypercohomology isn’t on this list.”
