Sophus Lie was a Norwegian mathematician but otherwise a somewhat boring person. He played with tools called continuous transformation groups. After that, he fathered three children, had a mental breakdown and went to hospital for four years.

The Norwegians named a street called Sophus Lies Gate between Bygdøy Allé and Thomas Heftyes Gate after him, and built houses for public servants along it. That is everything we could possibly say about it. We’re sorry. We have to be honest. Like Sophus we never lie.
