ABSTRACT
The article offers several anecdotes for math enthusiasts. A mathematician has created a proof of the Ichihara-Warner Conjecture when his 14-year-old nephew discovered a tiny error, which eventually destroyed his life's work. A math teacher was having problems about one of her students because everytime the midterm exams happen, the student will be forced to miss the exam reasoning out the death of her grandmother. A 10-year-old boy asks about the role of a math ethicist.
