Proof? We don’t need no stinkin proof!

I’ve been informed by several people that the Riemann Hypothesis proof isn’t all its cracked up to be.

I know more about math than most people, but to be honest, I had to go way out of my way to even understand what the Reimann Hypothesis is. My understanding of it is such that I mostly get what it is and what its trying to prove, but I don’t know if I could explain it to other people in a way that could do it justice. Mind you, this isn’t solving it, its just understanding what the question is.

There are other great unsolved math problems that are pretty easy to understand. A good one is the Goldbach Conjecture: Every even number is the sum of exactly two primes. Simple to understand, simple to verify to any given even number you pick, so far impossible to prove for all evens. If you can find an even number that isn’t the sum of two primes, you’ll be famous.
