    the IPCC could use a speed reader like him because global cooling would set in before IPCC finishes their conference

    smart 16 years old kid!

    STOCKHOLM (AFP) – A 16-year-old Iraqi immigrant living in Sweden has cracked a maths puzzle that has stumped experts for more than 300 years, Swedish media reported on Thursday.
    In just four months, Mohamed Altoumaimi has found a formula to explain and simplify the so-called Bernoulli numbers, a sequence of calculations named after the 17th century Swiss mathematician Jacob Bernoulli, the Dagens Nyheter daily said.
    Altoumaimi, who came to Sweden six years ago, said teachers at his high school in Falun, central Sweden were not convinced about his work at first.
    "When I first showed it to my teachers, none of them thought the formula I had written down really worked," Altoumaimi told the Falu Kuriren newspaper.
    He then got in touch with professors at Uppsala University, one of Sweden's top institutions, to ask them to check his work.
    After going through his notebooks, the professors found his work was indeed correct and offered him a place in Uppsala.
    But for now, Altoumaimi is focusing on his school studies and plans to take summer classes in advanced mathematics and physics this year.
    "I wanted to be a researcher in physics or mathematics; I really like those subjects. But I have to improve in English and social sciences," he told the Falu Kuriren.

    Thing is, I want to know the formula now! I know B numbers were previously only defined recursively so a closed expression would REALLY be something.

    And they say badminton players are geeks.

    I love stories like this. An outsider uses his brains and moxy to solve a supposedly impossible problem. And after a little resistance from the powers that be, everyone realizes what a genius he is. Good Will Hunting in real life! I just hope he can get the girl too. (math wizards are known for their social skills).

    ..nothing is permanent. Even water can topple those rocks as seen here:

    For those living up in the Bay Area, I guess Bill Dan does his work along the beach @ the San Francisco Aquatic Park..
