It is a truth universally acknowledged that a group of people in possession of a large knowledge must be in want of an acronym.

I thought falafel, lettuce, tomato was a good guess. Kerin Arn @ 01/22/2009

Oh dear! I was stumped there - but then it is 25 years that I participated in that seminar on FLT (http://www.amazon.com/13-Lectures-Fermats-Last-Theorem/dp/0387904328)

That always really annoyed me, because when I see \"FLT,\" I tend to think \"Fermat\'s Little Theorem.\"

Also, the comic made me crack a smile, but I actually laughed out loud at \"It is a truth...\"

And good luck with your grad school apps! matthew @ 01/13/2009

Maybe I should have said that \"FLT\" means \"Fermat\'s Last Theorem,\" but if you read the comic and didn\'t know what I meant, then you were in a very similar situation to the one I was in at the Joint Math Meetings. Jette @ 01/13/2009
