Basically there are 7 questions in math that were part of the millennium challenge. If you answer one correctly you get a million dollars.

```
* Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture
* Hodge Conjecture
* Navier-Stokes Equations
* P vs NP
* Poincar Conjecture
* Riemann Hypothesis
* Yang-Mills Theory
```

Questions have been around for hundreds of years, yet no one was able to solve them.

A russian guy solved Poincare** problem in 2002, but took mathematicians years to understand his answer and verify it (lol), finally they said it was correct and offered him the 1million dollar prize. He rejected it and instead prefers to live in poverty with his mother and sister, he has his own apartment but apparently it is full of cockroaches.

He also rejected a fields metal for “his contributions to geometry and his revolutionary insights into the analytical and geometric structure of the Ricci flow”.

When he was a teenager he won a gold in the IMO (international math olympics) which is fucken hard to do. Not only did he win Gold which is retardedly hard to get, but he got a perfect score. This leads me to believe that he has aspergers or autism, which would explain his retarded social behavior and rejecting 1million dollars…

He grows a big beard and long nails and likes to pick mushrooms. He doesn’t like academic math anymore either because he finds math itself tedious or the ethical standards of the academic community are lacking.
