Amazing Claim

University of Waterloo - Mathematics Seminar

For the morning session, my group had this professor-guy who was obsessed with talking in point form. Each time before he proved a theorem, he loudly announced "CLAIM". David made a tally of the number of times the words "CLAIM", "FACT" and "NOTE" were said. According to the it, by the pigeon-hole principle, there was a minute when the professor said "CLAIM" three times.

Once the professor stated a theorem and said "This is another claim. CLAIM!". Another time, he even announced "STORY" (and told us a story). Also, when the chalk broke into two pieces (stupid university just couldn't afford normal chalk), the professor madly threw the remaining piece (that was still in his hand) at the board and cursed for a while.

There's a Buffet City at 3160 Steeles Ave. E... but I'm not sure what the prices are. They are fairly reasonable, I think. It opened up in the last few years, and my parents and I like going there a lot.

You told me this story before, Oleg.
