Pitagoras - wasn't he a distant relative of that great Greek philosopher
and mathematician, Pythagoras?
You know, the doctrine of metemphychosis and the idea that numbers are
the essence of all things?
Oh, yeah, he (Pythagoras) also did some little-known theorem about a
right triangle involving some abstract sum-of-squares thing.

Back to work.
