Happy Holidays to all!

You can get a Klein bottle and Möbius scarf from http://Klein-bottle.com, but if you want to drink water from the Klein bottle, it's best to get the Klein stein. It can fit all the water there is inside it. I labeled the inside and outside of my Klein bottle with Möbius strips so I wouldn't get them confused. Unfortunately, I accidentally smashed that one earlier this year :( I'd make a joke involving its dimensionality, but all the good ones have already been made on the Klein bottle site.

Thank you Angela! That is an awesome site!

I've got a hard time imagining how möbius socks would look like. Or can someone show a sock-like object with only one side? :)

What? No elementary proof of the four-color theorem? No proof of The Goldbach conjecture or the Riemann hypothesis?

Of course not. It's no fun if someone just gives it to you.

I could live with it if he'd just give me a hint...

You people have no idea what happens to computer scientists that have been not so good. They dream a conclusive 1-page proof for P != NP, but magically forget it before having the chance to write it down. Santa's a bitch :)

Strange, I dreamed a proof that P == NP. Guess I've been writing too many factorization algorithms...

As a matter of fact, that only happens to very bad computer scientists / mathematicians -- oh, and of course to good cryptography people: Imagine the relieve when they wake up :)

Really, Latex underwear?

(Is what I meant to say...)

LaTeX is ZE best mathematical text editor. Read any math paper or thesis, you have a 90% probability it was written with TeX / LaTeX / MikTeX / etc.

It would be a Rubik's TESSERACT - a hypercube is n-dimensional, whereas a tesseract is definitively 4-dimensional. If you want a Rubik's hypercube, you will have to define another parameter - the dimensionality.

Maybe he doesn't care about the dimensionality, or wants as much as Santa can manage. A tesseract would be nice; a 7-dimensional hypercube would be better. No point limiting the request to a tesseract when you're talking to a magic present man.
