    Unless the mathematician wants to do some carpentry. Tools are useful for
    tasks, not people. I use 'meme' a lot, when it's useful, and it's only
    been useful in casual, general, discussions about culture. Once we
    actually have a nail to hit, I try to grab one, and come up empty-handed.
