Ask Dr. Gott 12/07

DEAR DR. GOTT: I have a habit that I have developed off and on for the past two years. I love the taste of clay. It's not dirty as far as I can see. I eat almost a 1/2 cup at least once a week. I know this is not normal behavior. Tell me a bad side of this problem that might make me stop the habit. I live in South Carolina, where clay is easily found. Please help.

There is a cure for all illness

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."
