I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

comment All possible electromagnetic Lorentz invariants that can be built into the electromagnetic Lagrangian?
One wonders if there are people doing $f(F)$ E&M in the same way there are people doing $f(R)$ gravity.

Something coordinate dependent, that's for sure. Also, would this be related to your other question?

comment How can a singularity in a black hole rotate if it's just a point?
I have to disagree with this providing an answer to the OP's concerns. While true that the Kerr singularity is a "ring" in some convenient coordinate system, at best this just picks out a direction. If the OP is unwilling to accept angular momentum as intrinsic to spacetime, then a hoop is no better than a point: which way does it rotate? The point vs. ring distinction is a red herring here. Besides, classical mechanics self-consistently has point particles with nonzero angular momentum.
