You can call me anything you want. Sticks and stones and all.
Math is just another language, however one without analogy.

I've read Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and I'm familiar with Nikolai Gogol through his work in mathematics. In addition tho this admittedly limited subset of famous Russians, I've made friends with people from the Ukraine (both of them exchange students).

Finally, I've actually 'met' and 'interacted with' several Russians online over the years. Overall I have the deep abiding suspicion that Russians come in two distinct mindsets. There are those that are 'normal people' who love their homeland but generally aren't any different from anyone else in the world. Then there are the Russian Nationalists, who are completely bloody crazy.

The Russian Nationalists type have a lot in common with Muslim Jihadists and Zealots. They don't care who you are, where you're from, or what you think... if you aren't Russian they would just as soon slit your throat as look at you. Seriously crazy-arse sociopaths.

I do not understand people like that. I suppose that's not very different from the die-hard Trump supporting republicans, but what makes a person so .... messed up?
