Did you win the Putnam?

If not, please don't be "bolder" than this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravi_Vakil




"Did you win the Putnam?"

Yes, I did.


That has to be the comeback of all time.


News.YC does flame wars a whole lot better than the rest of the internet...


Sometimes with the flames on here however, it feels like Craigslist forums, in all of their 2.0 glory... ;)


HAHAHA! Awesome.


This whole thread is hilarious.


Damn. I'm totally busted.

Just the once, though, huh?


Yes, only once. But I actually consider my first score on the Putnam (53, ranked 53.5th in North America) to be my most impressive performance on the Putnam, considering that I was only 14 years old at the time.
