    OLAF FUB SEZ: According to cosmologist and Big Bang theory originator George Gamow , born Georgiy Antonovich Gamov on this date in 1904, “There was a young fellow from Trinity/ Who took the square root of infinity,/ But the number of digits/ Gave him the fidgets;/ He dropped math and took up divinity.”
