Kindly point out, Professor Bishop, where I had claimed - or even faintly hinted - that I "compare favorably with Perelman" (with or without "the help of OPMS").

I stand in awe of these lies you promote in support of the weak arguments you put forth!

- -- Has this lying helped you "BLOW UP ANY SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION" yet?
- -- Does this lying help you in any other way?
- -- Do you feel that by thus lying you have won your argument?
- -- Do you perhaps feel fulfilled by thus lying?
- -- Or is it just that you feel 'naturally happier' when you do it?

Do tell.

(Quentin Tarantino made a film called "Natural Born Killers". He has not yet, to the best of my knowledge, made a film called "Natural Born Liars").

By the way, in the New Yorker article I had linked to, "Manifold Destiny" by Sylvia Nasar, there is mention of some 'manifest lies' being promoted by a famous Chinese mathematician, Shing-Tung Yau, to the effect that it was he/his students that had solved the Poincare Conjecture and not Grigori Perelman.

Hint: He got found out. (And hopefully he has since been able to realize that there is really no reason to lie - it is self-defeating).
