free pick ThreeI tend not to leave many comments, but i did some searching and wound up here High IQ and Mathematics | Todd and Vishal's blog.

And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it look

like a few of the comments look like coming from

brain dead folks? π And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have

to post. Could you make a list of all of your social

pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

prof dr mircea orasanufor mathematics is used important results and domain in mathematics and must to write entire pages in this sense observed prof dr mircea orasanu and prof drd horia orasanu and thus followed that these pages have a more contribution for the above subject , for example to be possible posters with important aspects as LEGENDRE , LAGUERRE ,Henry POINCARE , MONGE, GERGONNE, GALOIS and others . These must continued in large spaces
