A is a pipe smoking topologist with a tweed jacket. He teaches at the University where he chairs the dean or deans the chair, I really do not know. He hates computers and everyone who uses them. His hero is the Legendary Sir Michael Atiyah and Andrew Wiles. His hours are pretty regular, up by 5:30 AM and in bed by 9:00 pm.

O, A told C to run a computer simulation. Either that or they both ran it together. Either way, he wouldn't trust the result.

Who would trust any result either of them got? In the immortal words of JFN. "I would not give him a quadratic to solve."

Clarify about what? Computer mathematics? The reptilloid threat? Brad and Angie? How I spent my summer vacation? The [blank] papers? Coral castle? Nikola Tesla? What?

The last two will have to remain mysterious. "A Bodacious Brain," starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Paul Bettany and Ed Harris was the story of an Nobel Prize winning mathematician.
