Thank you for playing.

I don't want to ague with you about it, it is not a subject of this post. No statistics is made. I heard the story, but it is only a story, I am not sure that it is a true story. And the story is this:
Long time ago it was announced that a proof of Four Colors Theorem was found. It was presented in Finland and I talked to mathematicians, who were there. They did not accept this proof because of use of computers. They even told that the method was known long before. Presenters just wrote a program to verify what was known before.
This is everything I know about it. I heard this from a second hand so I cannot be sure that it is true.
