    Some deaths are gory but amazingly satisfying, especially when you've hated a character/love the character that's doing the killing

    Uggh, I really like the books, but I'm not fond of the TV show. But the silly old man just won't get on with writing it. It's so frustrating, i end up watching the tv show at times and then regret my decision shortly after

    Paul Erdos was a peripatetic mathematician who made numerous contributions in numerous areas of mathematics. He was also well known for travelling the world from collaborator to collaborator - and published jointly with many other mathematicians.

    Hence the invention of the Erdos Number. If you had a joint publication with Erdos, your Erdos number is one. If you publish with a mathematician who has an Erdos number of n, your Erdos number is n+1. (You need a minimization step in the latter; your Erdos number is n+1 if the mathematician you publish with is n and is minimal amongst your joint authors.)

    My favourite thing is the friendship theorem in graph theory what Erdos proved. That was incredible.

    Why did chess pick somone from the 1800's!? That's bizarre... - was he actually a well-known player back then.

    I think that he's regarded as one of the first chess-super-geniuses.

    Nope, I'm lousy at chess!
