To stand a chance at “snarXiv vs. arXiv” I would need the abstracts, I guess, with the titles alone I don’t get above 70%.

What got me in the first run was, for example, “non-compact compactification” (that’s probably too absurd to be computer generated).

snarxiv is hilarious. Another one, though more sad (because the posters are completely serious), is viXra.org.

Arnold’s death is really a sad news.

Thanks for pointing out vixra.org – some of that stuff is really entertaining 🙂 and some of it really is serious. That is, it’s not a joke.

DR,

One of the regulars on that site is a Mister Victor Porton, who believes his math discoveries have earned him the Abel prize:

Thanks for the link to snarXiv. One of the papers that got me had “new old inflation” in the title … I figured that one couldn’t possibly be real. Wrong!

When you get 4 out of 4 right it calls you “Nobel Prize winner” and then if you get 5 out of 5 it says “Ed–is that you?”, beyond that I have not tried to go.

Porton’s request reminds me of a Russian beer ad I saw once. I cannot remember the brand, but the poster showed a bottle with the caption: “Buy our beer. We need your money.”

> and then if you get 5 out of 5 it says “Ed–is that you?”

No. The Ed sentence is random for 100% results.

Ed, I only made 5 tries in all and got 5 out of 5, all I know is that is what it said. Didn’t explore further. You could be right.

I got to a Nobel Prize straight off, then got them all wrong after that until I was worse than a monkey.
