Is the Pythagorean Theorem one of the few bits of information that remains in most minds after leaving middle school?  Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician who developed quite a cult following and is today immortalized by a2 + b2 = c2

We spent two nights in the town of Pythagorio, which is located on the island of Samos.  It was one of the quietest towns on our trip.  Other than the collections of tourist t-shirts, this statue is the only indication that Pythagoras also walked along this harbor.
