    I majored in it and actively work as an actuary, so I'd like to think so. Though at the higher theoretical levels my interest (and thus aptitude) fades--algebraic topology comes to mind.

    Here's a recent video I watched on modular forms by the man who wrote the one sentence proof of Fermat's theorem on the sum of two squares. Maybe I'm not so good after all... the guy is a beast.

    Woefully poor at it. I still struggle with even long multiplication or division.

    But I try extremely hard.

    I used to be good. It was my favourite subject at school. But unfortunately my mathematical skills right now are limited to counting money and sometimes solving sudoku.

    I couldn't solve you a math problem, but I could probably write you a story (after research of course) about a man/woman who is good at math.
    Always forward, never back!

    March on, life's too grand to let things get you down for long. It's a beautiful place and we're so blessed to be here.

    So then, if a math problem is presented as a story, do you find it easier?
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
