Tarski?s theorem: (For all infinite sets X there exists a bijection of
X to X × X) ==> (Axiom of Choice). [...] Fréchet and Lebesgue refused
to present it. Fréchet wrote that an implication between two well
known propositions is not a new result. Lebesgue wrote that an
implication between two false propositions is of no interest.
