Abbreviations and full names

So, I will say an abbreviation, then you need to say what is the full name.

Here is an example:

1. JTM
(1) I don't know (that person does not know that abbreviation)
(1) julianthemath

The second line after "1. JTM" wins. He/she gets a point.

Let's start!

Big Bubba Cartwright. He was the missing son of Ben Cartwright, owner of the Ponderosa ( shown below ). He was never on the show but somehow you get the feeling that he must exist.

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.
