|Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty||Mathematician of the week|
Girolamo Cardano (1501 - 1576)
To throw in a fair game at Hazards only three-spots, when something great is at stake, or some business is the hazard, is a natural occurrence and deserves to be so deemed; and even when they come up the same way for a second time if the throw be repeated. If the third and fourth plays are the same, surely there is occasion for suspicion on the part of a prudent man.
De Vita Propria Liber.
Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
