Ever thought of running for president? Or better still, come over to Oz and use you unique style to sort our politicians out!

Happy Holiday Ben, to you and all your round-faced buddies! Let humor ring…

Although I’ve visualized a fourth dimension in an altered state (and only in an altered state), _Flatland_ didn’t have a whole heck of a lot to do with my finally seeing the Klein bottle after many unsuccessful years of trying.

Thanks for the timely post. Independence Day is a bit much for me. I proposed a weaker version to be called Zero-Correlation Day.

Props for the Flatland mention.

What a great book…

:D:D:D:D

You have a sense of humor similar to my HS calculus teacher, especially that shoelaces one. He’d always revert to quips and one-liners whenever we made stupid mathematical errors.
