Wunderbar! I did not see that at all. The dash is staring everyone right in the face. I thought her name was:

I guess my brain has turned to latex.

This is now an active field of research. The search is on for other names that flabbergast people. I can see multitudes of grants being given out at all the major universities. Let me have the first one. Name your child Hi:ic.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

"Lenota", "Leoppositea" (six syllables), "Letakeawaya"  Oh that's it!  Take her away!  She is able to certify; that is, certifiable.  Must be a French name though since it starts with "Le".  But they might spell the "-" as "daioueche".

Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional).
LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make.

Huh?  Had me fooled too.  I have to say it is definitely very unique.
