Got me thinking...Hi;
as everybody on the planet already knows this site belongs to MIF. It did get me thinking though about that fame he mentions. Everyone knows I am a modest sort of chap but mixing with the Hollywood crowd seemed long overdue. 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. #2 20121219 18:56:42

Re: Got me thinking...I like your idea though 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Got me thinking...It is a social network, like Facebook, except things go quite differently there. All the celebrities have a Twitter account, but, of course, everyone can have one.
