A mathematician is someone who says "when we prove a theorem, we shouldn't introduce things that seem to come out of nowhere", and then immediately starts their proof of the Mean Value Theorem with "Let g(x)=f(a)+(f(b)-f(a))(x-a)/(b-a)".

S: That seems a little dishonest. I think you and I are the only ones who have read X's paper

Me: Well, then it looks to me like you've solved X's Problem.
