Mathematicians Directions

Inspired by Julian's directions to Nick's body. Review the videos of Thursday night to see.

Video sketch. Person is sitting at a desk and speaks to the audience seriously.

"If you are watching this, then I am dead. As you will have heard, in the past few weeks I have been developing a proof of *insert unsolved theorem here.* Aware that my exploits were attracting attention, I have buried the proof in a secret location for you to recover. Begin at my house, take a left and bear east-south-east for 22 km...

(video continues with very complicated mathematical directions involving trigonometry, perpendicular bisectors, modular arithmetic, multi-dimensional calculus etc. Look at the video for inspiration)

When the mathematician finishes the cameraperon's voice cuts in:

 "You hid it under your pillow?"
