Very Trippy Blog

You ever think to yourself, what if a mathematics-linguistics genius with a playful writing style had a blog? Wonder no more. It’s The World of Dr Justice, and it does not disappoint.
If you’re like me, reading this stuff is like trying to sip from a fire hose, but no doubt I’ll end up the smarter after reading the blog daily for a year.
Oh yes, Dr Justice updates his blog every single day, so you never have to wait.
