    A mathematician finds a very rare math book in an old book shop (an original copy of Euclid’s “Elements”, autographed by the author), and it only cost him $1.00. To celebrate he meets his friends at a local bar. About an hour into the celebration he realizes he left the book in the back seat of his car, in plain sight. He rushes out to his car to get the book, but it was too late. He sees the back window of his car has been smashed. He looks into his back seat only to discover that someone has broken into his car … and left two more math books.
