comment What are some examples of a mathematical result being counterintuitive?
Well, it might not be directly related to fractal geometry, I guess. I heard of it in a fractal geometry course. The thing about it is, that it is possible to rotate the needle in a set of Lebesgue measure 0, but Hausdorff dimension 2. The latter takes fractal geometry to prove.

comment What are some examples of a mathematical result being counterintuitive?
I heard about it in a Fractal Geometry-course. Funny result. In general, I think fractal geometry takes some getting used to. Fx the notion of Hausdorff-dimension. It is somewhat counterintuitive to me that a set, such as the Cantor Set can have irrational Hausdorff dimension (here ln 2/ ln 3), even if it is a subset of R, and has Lebesgue measure 0.
