Revolutionary Breakthrough In 2D Planar Geometry

Wonder if any of you caught the announcement of the most breathtaking, path-breaking advance in 2D geometry since the day the Elements were a gleam in Euclid's eye? This headline in today's Hindu spills the beans:
Five-nation triangular axis mooted
Auslin, having done to geometry roughly what Jael (Heber's wife) did to Sisera, is surely a shoo-in for the next Fields Medal.

From one of Sir Woody's plays, I think, "God" which was set in Ancient Greece:

"I ran into Isosceles. He had a great idea for a new triangle!"
