Laughing It Up With Gauss
A few months back Evelyn Lamb introduced me to a humor site I love, called "Gauss Facts" -- a sort of over-the-top jocular fan-site for one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. Worth checking out every few months, or whenever you feel the need to inject a little humor into your day (...and, you're a mathematician):
some example 'facts':
"Gauss can recite all of pi -- backwards."
"Gauss shaves both himself and Bertrand Russell."
"Erdos believed God had a book of all perfect mathematical proofs. God believes Gauss has such a book."
