Mathematics – Queen of the Sciences

I try to keep the fact that I am a mathematician under wraps. It doesn’t really impress many people, and I wind up having to answer the question, “Why?” Answering, “because Mathematics is the Queen of the Sciences” doesn’t quite mean what it did when Carl Freidrich Gauss first called it that so I refrain from saying it out loud. Sometimes, when I do give that answer, the conversation can get a bit dicey.

Most of the times, these days, I don’t even attempt an answer. If I say, for example, “because it’s so elegant”, which it certainly is, I’m likely to get funny looks. I usually just shrug my shoulders and grunt something unintelligible.

I’m not going to attempt to answer the question, “Why?”, directly in this blog, but by reading it, I hope you come away with the same appreciation that I have for the ‘Queen of the Sciences’.

What is “I Got Scammed on the Internet” all about?

I don’t really remember how this got started, but for some time now I have been running down internet scammers and writing about their scams. I find it exhilarating to draw a scammer into my web while the scammer thinks he, or she, is drawing me into his, or hers. The final move in this game is to reveal to the scammer that they’ve been had. Their reactions are as varied as the scams, but every oneĀ of them is priceless.

It will likely take me quite a while to get all of my already-written articles posted, and in the meantime, I will be looking for new scams to expose.

Currently, I am working on a possible book project about internet scams. The manuscript title is “I Got Scammed on Craigslist”. When/if it is published, I will let the world know right here.
