I am reminded of an old Tom Lehrer song:  "Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky"    (02)

"And when the work is done
Aha begins the fun
 From Dnepropetrovsk to Petropavlovsk
by way of the east and Novorossisk
to Alexandrovsk to Akmolinsk
to Tomsk to Omsk to Pinsk to Minsk
to me the news will run.
(Yes, to me the news will run!)
And then I write both morning, night
and afternoon, and pretty soon,
my name in Dnepropetrovsk is cursed
when he finds out I published first."    (03)

And unlike 1960, when Lehrer wrote it, that trek can now occur in an 
hour, without any losses.    (04)

Heavens!  I may have violated Lehrer's IPR.    (05)
