    The Chinese are plenty comfortable these days, relatively speaking, and they don't invent or innovate shit, because, well, the lash.
    I don’t think you read much of anything at all, actually. That’s not really the point he was making.
    focus.

    If we enable everyone to live out their potential, we might enjoy a few more Mozarts. ( well unless the negative flynn effect since the 80s makes it a lot harder again...) But where I live all kinds of education are free which is a start I guess.

    Benny just thinks I actually enjoy slavery and racism because the math was neglected by the quote .....


    Edit: While, quite ironically, he thinks that "the chinese aren't able to invent things".
    What have they invented over the past century?

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Way to the miss the point, as per usual.

    He had zero formal mathematical training and came up with it on his own.

    Wait, are we giving credit to Wuhan or not? Or is "Chinese" limited to a geographical area or a culture?

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I am frequently aghast or amazed.

    And the most amazing thing about Ramanujan was that a lot of times he had no proofs for his claims, but they turned out to be true.

Its been fine for the past year with zero commute traffic and WFH when they want, but i dont think they fully understand what a 3hr RT commute is gonna be like....

    our office was full WFH for about 6months and slowly opened back up. We have about 33-50% capacity on any given day now. Folks in managerial or leadership roles tend to be the ones to come in, along with some of the gungho younger folks. I feel like the folks still full-time WFHing are falling behind as its harder to mentor someone if you have to pick up the phone every time to give them some advice, or they dont get to overhear you on a call deal with a situation. Or they arent physically there "in the shit" with you when a fire drill happens, nor are they there afterwards when your sharing a beer on friday afternoon. Ive been back full time for a while... it turns out that when a space is specifically designed for productivity in your field of work, you are more productive than crammed into the corner of a bedroom squinting at a small screen trying to talk over the dog and cat playfighting.
    Tell them to not to worry. They will be able to rent from the private equity groups that purchased all the real estate closer to work. Of course rent will be more than their mortgage, but they will be able to cut the commute down to an hour RT. At least until traffic returns.

    We get it Benny. You believe (strongly) that Chinese people lack innovative traits. You seem to overlook the fact that Chinese scientists/Chinese diaspora scientists write a very high number of scientific publications. Your stereotype that US values innovation while China does not is also false. As of a few years ago: US spending on R&D: $500 Billion, China spending on R&D $400 billion. China will surpass US soon on R&D spending. They're is a good possibility that many of the US company inventions over the last few decades were based on research by Chinese scientists and engineers. That those inventions were taken to market by US companies and not Chinese companies is a reflection on global economic dynamics, it is not reflection of the innovation traits (or as you claim, lack thereof) of Chinese people.

    You peddle in stereotypes and generalizations and you're an ill informed racist blowhard.

    Your point was poorly argued and incorrect and you revert to smarm and smug when called on it bullshitter, like usual. “Not having formal training” isn’t synonymous with “who can overcome access barriers” when you are an elite caste member dumbass. His birth class gave him access to the clerk job were he got his math connections

    I’d say you reverted to being dickish in your response but that’s pretty much always your starting point.
