Euclid: Not Just a Mathematician


Once known as "Millionaire's Row" and "The Showplace of America," Euclid Avenue set the standard for the nation in beauty and sheer wealth from the 1860s to the 1920s. The concentration of wealth was such that the mansions along it far exceeded the tax valuation of New York's famed Fifth Avenue. Euclid was recently featured in the filming of Spider-Man 3.

Euclid was an amazing mathematician. If the ancient Greeks were good for anything, it was definitely for math.

yeah, greeks have good food too, especially the homos. such an unfortunate name for such a delicious blend of chic peas...
however, at greek weddings, (i've heard) when you walk in the door all of your crazy aunts spit on you for good luck, so that you'll get married before you turn 14.

Hey it's not illegal if the restaurant is owned by his family. Just thank the now nonexistent everyday American farmer for that loophole.
How can I know this? Trust someone's whose parents have owned at least one business for as long as she can remember. The plus side is that you don't have to report taxes until you're 18... score!
