  4. There once was a professor named Dany
    Whose persistence and drive were uncanny.
    Although his crystals were quasi,
    His research was classy;
    And he received the Big Prize (and the money!)

  9. If i win the tie :

    it will be a proof I should always :
    "BE TIEd TO my BELIEVES, TRUTH and DISCOVERY".

    אלבוש אותה בכל פעם כשארצה להזכיר לעצמי, שלפעמים העולם כולו יכול לטעות, אבל אף פעם לא פרופסור מהטכניון... ולכן אסור לוותר על האמונה בדרך

  10. Greetings to Professor Dan that proofed no Technion professor can be wrong!
