The destruction of the Maine in Havana Harbor -- solved!
The 1920 Wall Street bombing -- solved!
The secret plot behind the Holocaust comes to light!
The truth about the 9/11 attacks revealed!
The existence of evil in the world explained at last!
And the answer to that age-old question -- Who killed Cock Robin?

Cauchar was at Nottingham the year after I started my PhD - the staff at the university, particularly Ivan Fesenko who gets mentioned in some of the write-ups and John Cremona who was head of department, went above and beyond to convince the Home Office that he was a really good mathematician worthy of being granted asylum, and clearly they were correct.

I better start learning theorems if I want, like Thomas Royen, to make an important scientific discovery at the age of 67 while brushing my teeth
