The final answer on what excites mathematicians. Superb chalk:
“There have been rumors about a dream chalk, a chalk so powerful that mathematics practically writes itself,” writes Professor Satyan Devadoss, on the website of the math and statistics department at Williams College, “a chalk so amazing that no incorrect proof can be written using this chalk. I can finally say, after months of pursuit, that such a chalk indeed exists. It is called the Hagoromo Fulltouch Chalk.” “For those lucky few who have used it, it can truly be called the Michael Jordan of chalk, the Rolls Royce of chalk,” he writes, tipping over into italics in his excitement.
While the Michael Jordan of chalk is grounds for excitement, it would be interesting to consider a mathematician’s reaction to The John C. Reilly of cruciferous vegetables The Justin Timberlake of plagues or The Alec Baldwin of melted sandwich cheese.
