I no longer have a soul, having bartered it long ago for dashing good looks and a handful of super-powers.

You Do the Math

A group of the world's top mathematicians have decided that math is really, really hard. Some math anyway. So they've decided to do what dumb kids with too much money have always done, they're going to pay people like YOU to do their homework.

Rather than give you their lunch money, the mathematicians are offering to pay ONE MILLION DOLLARS each for the solutions to seven of the hardest math problems ever.

The list of seven includes the following equations, named for the mathematicians who postulated them: the Riemann Hypothesis, the Poincare Conjecture, the Hodge Conjecture, the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture, Navier-Stokes Equations, the Yang-Mills Theory and the P versus NP Problem.

So if you've got some spare time and a chalkboard, why not give it a shot?

It's only math.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
