comment Is it normal to have no publications after 2.5 years in a PhD program?
Although that's normal in many (most?) fields, I'm not sure it's true in CS.

comment Which of Paul's letters were written to strangers?
@ScottS: Assuming it was written to Ephasus and that Acts is historically accurate about Paul's visit there, yes you're right. I tried to stay on the much safer historical grounds of what Paul wrote about the churches.

comment What evidence suggests that Paul was not the author of Titus?
There's a good summary at Early Christian Writings. I'll try to write an answer tomorrow.

comment How weird can Modular Tensor Categories be over non-algebraically closed fields?
Modularity should be thought of as being as far from symmetry as possible. In the symmetric case the S-matrix has rank 1, and in the modular case it has full rank. On the other hand, Rep(G) is contained in its center which is modular, so @DavidSpeyer's example still works.
