Gauss Facts (much like Chuck Norris Facts) are short and absurd claims about Gauss's intelligence. I believe they originated with Matt J Heath's post and then later Ian posted a bunch.

I know every digit of pi in base 10 too! they're 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

(I just don't know what order to put them in)

DAMNIT! you beat me to it... :P

Which base 10?

Classic :D

Silly, all bases are 10.

All your base are belong to Gauss.

Good one!

That is Awesome!

Gauss solves the Travelling Salesman Problem in O(1).

Is Gauss equivalent to a non-deterministic Turing machine?

"Gauss drinks his beer from a Klein bottle." ... I'll drink to that :)

I'm sure there's a good one about CRT Monitors, but I can't quite work it out.

I drink mine from a Klein stein: http://www.kleinbottle.com/drinking_mug_klein_bottle.htm

I thought it was Euler who proved your thesis theorem--but they are only just getting to that level in his drawer of papers, and it will be published next week.

I still don't think Gauss can beat Saxton Hale. http://saxtonhalefacts.net/

Gauss can induct over the reals.

Well... there is a "Transfinite induction" where you can extend into real number. Or something my teacher's babbling about.

> Gauss has an Erdos number of -1.

this wins the thread

Gauss really has an (integer) Erdos number of 1-i.

I +1'd spikedmath on google :D

Just one commentary: Euler did and was all of that... BLIND!

Blind Euler could see THROUGH all 11 dimensions

Gauss knows whether or not P = NP

The font of the title of the Gauss Facts page is used so many times in the titles of Spiked comics. I wonder if there is any connection between them...

Digital Strip for the win :P

Actually, Euler knows the last digit of the expansion of pi: it is a 2. But this only works if you decompose pi in the "variable step" basis [1/3, 2/5, 3/7, 4/9, ...].

Regarding Klein bottles: who doesn't drink their coffee from one?

And while it

maylook that the Klein bottle link was given before, this is not really the case. Angela is a well-known time traveller who's been anticipating my posts for ages to make me look silly (but in the future).It's true; I travel in a Klein-police-box which is bigger on the inside than on the inside.

Gauss's blood group is the Fischer-Griess Monster.

So, Gauss discovered the Bring radical first? ;)

In

~~Soviet Russia~~pre-2002 Germany, Gauss doesn't just get 10 marks out of 10 in maths tests, the 10 Marks get him."I travel in a Klein-police-box which is bigger on the inside than on the inside."

My favorite sentence ever.

all your bases belong to Gauss

Gödel's incompleteness theorems are two theorems of mathematical logic that establish inherent limitations of all but the most trivial axiomatic systems for mathematics and mathematics done by Gauss.

Gauss has counted till infinity.... many times!

he's counted the uncountable infinities too.

Unlike Chuck Norris who would kick your ass,

Gauss would disprove your very existence.

I'd respond, but Gauss had a fight with me, so I never existed... :(

Gauss can derive anything from P OR not P

Gauss couldn't solve FLT
