Those from America should recall the meme that was the Chuck Norris facts, and this is the mathified version: GauÃŸ facts!.

Some of my favorites:

The Clay Mathematics institute owes GauÃŸ $7,000,000. GÃ¶del heard there were some problems GauÃŸ couldn't prove, and that was enough for him. GauÃŸ knows an explicit bijection between and To win a bet, GauÃŸ once threw darts uniformly at the real number line and hit only rationals. ErdÃ¶s believed God had a book of all perfect proofs of mathematical theorems, God believes GauÃŸ has such a book. GauÃŸ once played himself in a zero-sum game. . . and won$50.
GauÃŸ has an ErdÃ¶s number of -1.
GauÃŸ proved there were infinitely many proofs by counting them. . . backwards, from the last.
GauÃŸ can walk through KÃ¶nigsburg and cross all of its bridges once, and only once.

This one has got to be my favourite:

Gauss didnâ€™t discover the normal distribution, nature conformed to his will.

I think that might be my favorite too!

I like this one as well:

Gauss developed Fractal Theory when he had broccoli for first time, but considered it obvious enough and didn't publish.

Well I made the mistake of reading this with uninitiated guests in the room. Here is me laughing out loud at.... well inappropriate times and trying to explain the humor in the words but was unable to do it. so after going back later I had to wonder about these 2

Gauss can shave with Occam's razor
Gauss shaves both himself and Bertrand Russell

Would that be with the same Occam's Razor ?? What a man he was

But my favorite has to be this one .

All theorems were once called 'The Gauss theorem', however Gauss allowed others to take credit so as not to confuse everyone.

But isn't this one the way it's supposed to be ????

" when Gauss adds one, the number doesn't increase all others become smaller"

I wonder is there a proof that this is not true ??? if so I better rethink my math err theorems err something anyway.

It's worth the read. I think I could lose some Sanity points with my friends but ' when it's too late it's too late '

How do you plan on ordering complex numbers?
