Title: Discovering a Full But Irrational Self

Abstract: There are problems like the following: Is it possible to partition R^n such that no two points in one component has rational (Euclidean) distance from each other? Given a subset of R^n is it possible to find a subset of it that is full (roughly means having the same outer measure) and no two points in it have rational distance from each other? ETC. I'll sketch some known proofs and mention some open problems.
