Once I was wondering what would happen if mathematics played a bigger role
in everyday life, so that industrial companies were
sponsoring mathematical research. So, when I come up with a new theorem, I
would have the chance to sell it to a company. My name sounds too stupid
anyway, so "Toth's theorem" is not a good idea. But then, for some
financial support for me it could become known as "Coca Cola's theorem".
Fun, isn't it?
