### Nobody likes topologists anyways.

My fellow classmates are making an end of the year gift for one of our professors.  I took the idea and ran with it.. topology style:

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

So I've gone a bit overboard...

Most of the things are dealing with upper level undergraduate math and graduate mathematics, so don't be worried if you don't get 'em.

Galois theory can be used to show that polynomial can't be solved by radicals (square roots, cube roots, nth roots, of rational numbers)
