I was just lucky enough to stumble across your profile for reasons that escape me at the moment, and I happened to see your birthday shortly before it actually happened.

By the way, that Weil conjectures stuff quite frankly terrifies me. And I took advanced calculus in college! Sure, I've forgotten most of it, but still!

Ditto. I can't even understand the terminology used in that article, and I'm a math major. (Okay, majoring in math in community college is a different thing from majoring in math in grad school. And I tend more to applied math than pure math anyway. But still). On the other hand, the topic does sound like a good source for jokes involving Dr. Weil from the Megaman Zero games.

Anyway, congratulations on the thesis, Zeke, and happy birthday (and Merry Christmas, while I'm at it).

As a special Christmas bonus, I'm going to annoy you with a piece of minutae. When I read "ditto," my mind immediately went to the Pokerap:

"Ditto, Cloyster, Caterpie, Sandshrew..."

Yikes, am I a geek.

This is the same one that I know about already? Because if it was a different one then I'd be seriously impressed (though in that case you could throw some pity in there as well).

I'm pretty sure the last one we talked about was in springtime. If so, this is indeed a different one.

...Wow.

On a totally and utterly random tack, I think my dislike of the works of Phillip K. Dick is now officially irredeemable - I finished Do Androids? a few days ago and didn't like it at all. It doesn't amaze me that Blade Runner should have come out of it, though it is by far the better of the two, because as with most of Dick's work I like some of the ideas, I just can't stand the way they're presented. So there it is, the one tarnish on my gleaming armour of scientifiction nerdosity that will never go away.

*Bump*

... That is to say, "Happy Birthday, Zeke!" Why start a new thread when we can reuse the old one? Like those fruitcakes people keep passing along....
