You will have a stronger-than-usual capacity to influence people when it is important for you to do so. The only danger involved is that others will believe what you say, even if and when you should be wrong.
DEAR DR. GOTT: I am 5 feet 6 inches tall and weigh 120 pounds. I am a very active 73-year-old. I take Centrum Silver once a day, niacin and omega 3 twice a day. My problem is I have a fat stomach. I have tried sit-ups and leg lifts with no help. I was told stress causes this. I have been under a lot of stress, as my husband died very suddenly. It has left me with a lot of decisions to make alone. Is there any way I can get rid of the fat stomach?

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."
