@brian charlesworth Congratulations for this streak! I always found your Geometry questions super awesome! "A tight fit" was the first Level 5 problem I solved! It was always a superb experience to solve your questions. Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Pranjal Jain Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy solving my geometry questions. As I recall, "A tight fit" was the first of my many "fitting circles in between random curves" problems. They're a bit weird, I suppose, but they each pose a slightly different challenge. Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Brian Charlesworth Congratulations :D on killing problems all the year :D, You should try fitting ellipse between the curves :D. this might be my last day on this site cauz I will be busy in JEE prep. Krishna Sharma · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Krishna Sharma Thanks! I'll try your suggestion of fitting an ellipse, (or two), but the calculations may get messy. Good luck with your JEE prep. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Brian Charlesworth Exactly! And I love all of them. Just curious, was it a set goal or it just happened?

@Pranjal Jain It wasn't really a goal, but as the streak got longer I didn't want to break it, so I always made sure I'd answer a question, even a simple one, before going to bed. I can't keep it up forever, but I am glad that I made it to a full year. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Megh Choksi Wow! So many points in one month. At this rate you'll pass Jon by the end of 2015. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Brian Charlesworth Frankly , I don't think that I can even compare to Jon Haussmann . But thanks sir, don't know but maybe I can touch 800,000 by the end of this year .

P.S. Looking up to you, now even I want to create and maintain atleast a 1 year streak . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Megh Choksi Thank you megh choksi for taking out time to post your leaderboard's pic . This week Jon Haussmann will definitely beat me and here's why :

Both of them are my twice or thrice!!😨 Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M Thanks, Azhaghu. I hadn't looked at the points chart for a long time. Jon Haussmann is uncatchable, but my hope is to some day post a question that not even he can answer. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

Congratulations! Wonderful achievement! I look up to you and aspire to reach your level of expertise. Congrats again! Pratik Shastri · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Pratik Shastri Thanks, Pratik. Judging from all your excellent posted problems I suspect that you've already surpassed my 'level of expertise'. Keep up the good work. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 3 months ago

Thanks, Megh!! I really appreciate this, fireworks and all. This is a great community to be part of, and every day I learn something new, such as the fact that \(365\) is such a beautiful number. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Brian Charlesworth Which concept in math or physics is most beautiful according to you(please say except geometry) Megh Choksi · 2 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Megh Choksi Well, Euler's formula \(e^{ix} = \cos(x) + i*\sin(x)\) is probably the most beautiful (and important) in mathematics, and in physics the honor might go to Einstein's field equations. Gödel's Completeness/Incompleteness Theorems are mind-blowing in their significance as well. If you have the time, I would recommend "Gödel, Escher, Bach" by Douglas Hofstadter as an excellent overview. Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago

Congrats Brian ^_^ You are the most addicted person to Brilliant.org. And you got a new nick name 'The King Math'

@Soumo Mukherjee Thanks again. I may be addicted, but Marios Patsios has a 488-day streak going, so I'm not the most addicted. :) As for "The King Math", I would bestow that honor to Jon Haussmann, aka The Annihilator, or to Michael Mendrin, aka Mr. Mathopedia, or even to any number of the amazing members who participate on this site.

@Pranjal Jain Hi, I heard that you are a moderator here on Brilliant so can you please tell me who are the people with the most number of points ?

Thanks for the same . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Azhaghu Roopesh M Yes! I am a moderator. But we don't have this much access. We just edit questions for LaTeX and other problems, make problems popular, and report wrong answers. But according to my experience, Jon Haussman must be the highest. 300,000+ club includes @brian charlesworth @Sharky Kesa @Trevor B. @Pi Han Goh @Mardokay Mosazghi Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Megh Choksi Hey! Just curious.. Is that tag #\(\color{red}{brain}\)charlesworth intentional? Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Pranjal Jain Let it be there , first I made a mistake in writing name , but this suits the man Megh Choksi · 2 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Megh Choksi Haha. Normally when my name is misspelled there is a "y" in place of the "i", but the (unintentional) "brain" misspelling is quite common too. :) There are so many brainy people on Brilliant: I feel quite humbled by all the talent on here. You're all well ahead of where I was at your age, (and probably ahead of me now, for that matter). Keep it up and do good things with your talent. :) Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 4 months ago
