The prototypical mathematician ( is NOT ).

A picture of the prototypical Linux type of person. As one gains experience in Linux one tends to start looking like the Ultimate Nerd. I wish I could understand why. Thank G_d, there are all sorts of mathematicians, maybe it's because mathematics in itself is so rich in subjects that there is no such thing as the prototypical mathematician. - I read somewhere that it is rather not done to say " I am a mathematician", the proper thing is " I studied math ", or something like that. One becomes a mathematician not before others ( in the field ) are calling you one. - I agree there is a difference between simply having done some math courses ( even if they add up to a B.Sc. or M.Sc ) and practicing mathematics at the research level.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
