Short, speed addicted, asexual, Hungarian mathematical genius who left his home at the age of 21 (because of antisemitism) and lived a nomadic lifestyle until his death at age 83 (in 1996) in Poland. He disliked everything (including women, children, alcohol, capitalism, god, his brain) except for numbers, Israel and speed. He published (co-authored) more than 1500 mathematical articles and offered prizes for the solution of problems he couldn't solve. Some of them haven't been solved, yet.
