Ok I'll confess, I've seen this guy on the Comedy Central.. either Colbert nation or daily show-cant remember-does not matter. But he got me thinking, he was multiplying 3 digit numbers without even waiting for Jon to finish.. A little more digging uncovered this awesomeness: http://www.ted.com/talks/arthur_benjamin_does_mathemagic.html This guy is awesome. On par with a statement a la "To the last, I grapple with thee; from hell's heart, I stab at thee; for hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee." He looks like the devil of sexiness. The prince of darkness of algebra. Anyone know what his deal is? He is not a savant, which brings me to another conjecture.. perhaps savants are not that smart either?
