Re: Topic Closed

I respect anybody that is self taught. It is hard enough to learn with a professor imagine with just a book and your own wits.

For some people this produces a measure of humility, for others it only convinces them that they are geniuses and everyone else is a fool. When someone disagrees with them they explode.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Why can't you have grey links again?
