Already working on it. That's how I'll win, too: easy to win if you're the founder. I'll hire PFers after year one for the real prize nominations... they know who's achieved, hopefully.
Why call it the Nobel? It's been done already. Call it the CharacterLimit prize in Mathematics.

Hmm... it does have a ring to it... but who would I nominate? I know nothing about great modern mathematicians, except for the FLT guy... Wiles?

Consider yourself lucky that I cropped the pic!

Quick. Someone take the wide-angle lens away from Dave.

This reminds me of my older brother's "Test Chicklet."






While working, we were staying at this hole-in-the-wall hotel/brewery in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania known as "Bube's," if the name is any indication (yes, actually pronounced: booooob-eeeees).

Anyway, after work, Jim accidentally dropped a white Chicklet (a squarish, hard candy shelled gum, for those who don't know) on the rug; and--not that we ought to have been surprised anyway--it remained there, in plain sight, just like that for the duration of our stay (say about a month, on-and-off, during the summer of 1999). Apparently, not even a household pest would desire to infest the likes of "Bube's" hotel.

Happened upon "Casablanca", and turned to it just in time to hear Sam play "As Time Goes By."

There are a lot of great lines in that film. My favorite is:

Captain Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.

Aaaaah, it's finally cool and damp, with a very nice drizzle ( hi drizzle ). I love the rain!

It makes my hair go all Isaac-Newton-y, though.
