### 3 U's

What's strange
I'm thinking of
that has three
"U"'s in it?

Imagine for a moment that even an earthworm may possess a love of self and a love of others.

Hi John;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Probability is the most important concept in modern science, especially as nobody has the slightest notion what it means.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.

I had thought that such words would be ubiquitous, but my search has proved unfruitful and now I am feeling rather lugubrious.

I assure you that I am scrupulous, and will resent any accusation that I have been untruthful.

Engaging in this verbal jujutsu is certainly unfruitful and maybe uncultured but it is certainly
not unthoughtful or unadventurous. You may call writng like this unctuous, unstructured and superfluous but...
Perhaps we can be more presumptuous and think of it like a luxurious trip to Albuquerque or a visit to
