To My Maths Friends  I am requesting the nobel prize, and 6 flights to Monte Carlo, after my discovery of the 'Phillips Box'  i have coined. In my theory, the coordinates: z=5 x=5 y=5 y=5 x=5 z=5 When plotted on the Cartesian plane, together make a perfect cube. I will be happy to receive my nobel prize by next wednesday. Thanks, Mr. Phillips (Founder of the Phillips's Box)

I regret to inform you that this is a derivative of my cube, whose vertices in Cartesian 3space have the coordinates: (k,k,k) (k,k,k) (k,k,k) (k,k,k) (k,k,k) (k,k,k) (k,k,k) (k,k,k) where and for which I have already been awarded the Fields Medal. As we speak, I am struggling to do the same for the hypercube. I suspect it will have 16 vertices, but the mathematics involved is nearly intractable.

So many things are wrong with the original post that I conclude that it must be a troll.

I was a bit amused, so I played along.

Can I apply for a Nobel Prize in mathematics (to which there isn't one) too? Because my 'mathemagic' work on my tests should give me an award of some kind.

I'm so worthy of said nobel prize, and flights to Monte Carlo, that you all can't comprehend my amazing theory. I deserve said nobel prize for my theory, and my cool hat. The nobel prize is MINE!
