Sir Failure of Plutonium <plutonium.archimedes@gmail.com> doth faileth again thusly:

Once again, you fail, by attributing to me one of your fantasies. Why would any mathematicians be fired? "Straighten up" how? Who would fire them? Why would I be involved? No mathematician has done anything wrong recently, as far as I know.

And yet another list, posted without explanation. I am becoming more and more certain that the tendency to post mystery lists is caused by reaching a certain point in mental deterioration, but I am still curious what the though process is.
