    If you are speaking of the 1965 movie, "The Sound of Music," I want to say that is one of my favorite movies.  It is important to realize, however, that it is fictionalized.  In real life, Maria married the Captain in 1927, and the Anschluss did not occur until 1938.  They also had two more children of their own by that time.  According to an article published in TIME Magazine in 1949, they came to the United States prior to Hitler's decision to annex Austria.  Finally, the von Trapps did not "escape" from Austria.  They merely boarded the train and went to Italy.  From there, they traveled about Europe, and then came to the United States.

      Of course he's talking about the movie.  Why else would anyone say that on YA as a joke question ?

    You just ask her how she solved the problem and then do it exactly the same way.

    For example, if Maria used the quadratic formula to solve the problem, you could use the exact same method.

    Then you would be solving a problem like Maria.

    Have the Sharks and Jets solve their dispute with a one-on-one fight.  I'm sure nothing will go wrong.

    Maria was Albert Einstein's pet name for the physics conundrum he spent a lifetime trying to, and ultimately failing to solve. In attempting to reconcile the special theory of relativity with Plank's quantum physics he became highly depressed and, in order to humanise the problem, he referred to it simply as his 'Maria', named after a favourite but mischievious niece. The phrase bears no relation to the expression "Mamma Mia" which is often used in vexed frustration, or indeed the popular song by Blondie. Solving the problem, and reconciling the physical world of the large with the quantum world of the small, has thus far proved impossible. However, Mrs Agnes McTeady of Gleneagles has recently claimed on her blog to have solved the Maria conundrum by conducting an experiment with a cannister of WD40, two sheets of sandpaper, a stapler and an elastic band. Yet, her results are still too be peer approved by the scientific community. For more information regarding the Maria problem, see Algernon Wilderbeast's book A Pocketful of Marbles.

    Was Maria the problem, or the fact that she was stuck in a convent of nuns?

    Send her off to be a governess, that might work. At least then she will be SEP.
