There is safety in numbers.

Righto! Seldom does one hear of mathematicians getting killed!

Okay, there was Archimedes, who ordered the Roman soldiers, "Nōlī turbāre circulōs meōs!"

He tried to protect his circles, but his circles couldn't protect him from the soldiers.

I don't know what happened to his circles thereafter . . .

I'll simply say, "Huh?"
