@pinkprius the thought did cross my mind that I could drop out of school and take my professors out to lunch occasionally to pick their brains…

@kai @pinkprius HIGHLY recommended. I did this with an old colleague of Gödel and Einstein. I wanted to learn set theory; so he set me down and taught me the basics over weekly tutoring sessions at a library. Best dang math teacher I’ve ever had.

It makes me weep with regret: that he intuitively knew my learning style and taught to it with a sharp curve. But the canned, brute force curriculum in school wasted my time, making me loathe math for decades... 🙍🏽‍♀️
