Archie Pu: A pathetic, angry old crank

Archie Pu is a pathetic, angry old crank and a troll -- a true math failure.

Archie actually believes that 10^666 is "an infinite number," that sine waves are just strings of alternating semi-circles, that ellipses are not conic sections and on and on it goes. His most famous idiocy is that the universe is just one gigantic plutonium atom (hence his new, legally established surname), but every day seems to bring a new idiocy from his keyboard.

Not a single one of his misconceptions is wasted. Each one is cause for rewriting all the math and science text books and rooting out a vast international conspiracy. I would feel sorry for him if he wasn't so obnoxious.
