Exclamation Own a piece of math history, for free!

This is going to be a bit complicated, so please bear with us.

We have commissioned an extraordinary run of limited edition buttons to commemorate the decennial anniversary of this forum.



We have dispatched sixty or so buttons already to people who replied to our "Strange Private Messages" thread. Alas, the title of that thread was mysteriously and maliciously changed to "Strange Private Massages" so understandably the response was less than optimal.

We have sent out buttons before, but they were to celebrate Mister Cooper's discoveries. He provided the buttons and we merely provided the transportation.

Since there has not been a Mersenne prime find in a long time, these alternative math-related buttons are obviously very desirable among the world's greatest number theorists. So, given the invaluable worth of these relics and their extremely limited nature, we have devised a needlessly byzantine method to distribute them as fairly as possible.

The button will be shipped to you, wherever you live, for free.

After you post your reservation, send a PM to us with your complete address. It is very important that your address is formatted in whatever international format is appropriate. It is also very helpful for you to notify us via this thread that you have received your button. We have had cases before where a button arrives months after being mailed, so do not give up hope!

If you live anywhere other than the USA the button will be listed on the customs form as a gift.

If you have received (or ordered) a button via our previous scam offer please refrain from requesting another.

Snake1: If someone is willing to contact Mally's family we would like to send a button to them. Thanks!

I have received mine, in good working order, and it is proudly displayed here at work next to my monitors for all to see and lust after. Greatly appreciated!

I agree. I thought the offer of a strange massage would have everyone flocking to take up the offer.
