2017 Nobel prize in Math        o-:^>___? goes
to Franz of Germany;; For- reverse-math

John Gabriel:: here is an exciting day in Germany where Franz has just won the Nobel Prize in Math, and here is Alouatta, here to explain what Franz has achieved with Reverse-Math.

Alouatta:: yes, John, Reverse Math is where you compose a proof in which everything, every statement is wrong, except for one sentence in the proof that is possibly true, all the rest of the sentences are crap.

John;; is there a need for such a mathematics? I mean, isn't it difficult enough to get someone to have a full page without errors?

Alouatta:: that is the boldness of Reverse Math, which is extremely difficult to do, to compose all lies, except for one sentence. Most math professors can only get 5 true sentences, whereas Franz has now eclipsed all fake sentences except one. See in Franz's classical report below.
