Re: Ethnic joke ?

Hi soroban;

That is actually somewhat true. Some Italians who landed on Ellis island had their last names changed by the people checking them in because they couldn't pronounce them. Happened to my great grandfather. Probably happened to other immigrants also.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

That is pretty funny even if it is true! So your Italian descended?

Kool! I wish I was descendant of another country, apart from England, I mean. An awesome country, at least.
