On a related note

I wish the press would leave Perelman alone. He's been working on the conjecture for ages. It's not like he solved it overnight. I'm sure its been a long grueling process and yet enjoyable in many way for this recluse. Don't spoil it for him. Repeated phone calls to his home is not the way to coax him out his shell.

On a totally unrelated note, I caught site of this interivew snippet with Al Jourgensen and Mike Scaccia on Trent Reznor over at the NIN hotline:

Interviewer: What was it like being friends with Trent Reznor? (Nine Inch Nails)

Al Jourgensen: Let me put it this way... Trent bought a house right above Tim's [Timothy Leary] house, literally you could see his house from 100 yards up. And I finally talked Tim into having Trent over for one of them dinners [Leary's dinner parties]. After about two hours, Tim took me aside and told me, he goes, "That's the most miserable, depressed human being I've ever met," and he didn't go back there after that.

Mike Scaccia: That's pretty crazy, because we were pretty miserable back then.

A: We were outgoing miserable...
M: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
A: (makes wilting gesture) miserable angst, I mean, I'd love to see like Trent and Morrissey play Russian Roulette and see which one of them shoots themself first...
M: That would be awesome.
A: That'd be awesome.
I: It's a win-win situation.
A: Yeah, exactly. (laughter)
Ouch. :(
