We want one too

(via the Computational Complexity blog)

Stephen Colbert unerringly calculates that since there are 4 Fields Medalists awarded, there is a 1/4 chance of him winning. Yes Stephen, we think so too. Watch the video as he proves how a rabbit is not topologically the same as a sphere since a rabbit has holes (presumably for reproductive purposes).

More video: Colbert shows that a doughnut is in fact decomposable into a sphere -- thereby bolstering his claim for the Medal.

Now we want one too.
