The Drinks are Most Definitely on Him

Not content with ‘just’ a Fields Medal, it looks like my bro has just picked up a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: nice one, brother!

Even more spectacular was that he made the front spot of the (online) Sydney Morning Herald on a day when the most popular story was about the perils of modern day medical procedures. It’s a poignant window into the Australian psyche…

Dude. The only way I can ever get that much money is if I win the lottery, rob a bank or sell my body 663,000 times.
