We are back after the short break. Let me remind those of you who turned on your TVs later that we are here with Pablo Gedonski, the contender who managed to solve 4 out of the 5 big questions of the world: the quadrature of the polar circle, the double of the sugar cube, the trisection of the toe angle in reason and the existence of perfectly odd numbers of love. Mr. Gedonsky, we are facing the last big question. Are you ready to be the first genius of the planet? No. Unbelievable. We have a winner.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In July 2022, the group has 8,750 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
