    The parents wasted their money. Unless they just wanted to brag about their children's "success".

    Ok, I admit I am a math ignoramus. I read he entire article and still don't know what the Poincare Conjecture is/was. They lost me at soccer ball/bagel. Can someone enlighten me in a few thousand words, what was the question and what is the answer?

    It's all about bragging about their kids.... when one of them even brags on line about not going to classes you can kind of tell...

    Did they really? For the leisure classes, living a life of illusion, impressions and projections, the 500k price tag is money well spent.

    It is the getting caught that is problematic .. and that can be addressed by a PR firm later down the road.

    They're currently in their 6th season, with about 6 or 7 episodes to go!
    She owns Abigaii's Cafe, is the town's Mayor, and is the best friend of THE star of the show, the town teacher, Elizabeth Thornton!!

    Don't know if they've already filmed all of the episodes yet.
    If they have, will they have to re-shoot her parts, and find a reason for her removal from the show's plot??

    Sad.

    Even for someone with great interest in mathematics, that conjecture seemed to have all the value of a pound of dirt.
