I love these so much:

http://www.gaussfacts.com/

"As a child, Gauss was instructed to sum the numbers from 1 to 100. He did this by summing the infinite series and then subtracting off every integer greater than 100, one by one, in his head."

"When Carl Friedrich Gauss adds one, his number doesn't increase, all other numbers become smaller."

"Gauss shaves both himself and Bertrand Russell."

"Gauss has an Erdos number of -1."
