Man Refuses Prize After Solving World's Most Complicated Math Problem

This guy is so AWESOMELY insane!!

We LOVE it!!

A reclusive genius, Dr. Grigori Perelman, famously solved one of the world's most complicated math problems, the one-hundred-year-old Poincaré conjecture, and is now refusing to accept a $1 million prize from the Clay Mathematics Institute for doing so!

The 44 year old man apparently prefers to live in St. Petersburg, Russia with his mom and sister, and has been given the nickname Mathsputin.

HA!

According to neighbors:

"He always wears the same tatty coat and trousers. He never cuts his nails or beard. When he walks he simply stares at the ground, rather than looking from side to side."

"I was once in his flat and I was astounded. He only has a table, a stool and a bed with a dirty mattress which was left by previous owners — alcoholics who sold the flat to him."

However, there's no denying this man is an effing genius! Perelman solved the Poincaré conjecture in 2002, and it took YEARS for experts to confirm he was correct!!

When reporters attempted to contact him, he responded, "You are disturbing me. I am picking mushrooms."

We are officially in love with this guy.

Damn the man, you do what you want, Grigori!!

    I think it's great to be able to accomplish something that profound,most of us will never be known to be a true genius and I think it is amazing to provide a prize for this,he should take it,but then again a true genius would shun the idea

    Quick, sign him to Pig Face Records. He would be BRASILBALLS, AMAZEBALLS, HIGHlarious at any Pig Face concert.

    Hey, if he doesn't want the money… can I have it? for a genius thats a pretty dumb move. But hey, to each his own. but seriously, can I have it? :)

    I just knew this man could not be american, no american would refuse the money. But yes he should take the million $$$$ and give it to needy people in Russia. His name sounds jewish, who said jews are always interested in money ?

  10. 110

    Oh BTW, he's Jewish :)



  11. 111

    Oops, I meant to say…BTW he's got another thing in common with Einstein - both are Jewish. Jews like to spend their time actually contributing to the world isntead of….promoting hatred, buying Nazi surfboards, having affairs with Nazi-loving tatooed sluts…you get the picture :D

    autistic or asperges, defenantly somewhere on the asd. he probably did it just coz he felt he HAD to do it. this world has been created and run by those that are asperges and autistic and only now are we finally giving them the credit they deserve but ppl still laugh and point when they see someone in town or at a school that has autisim.
