Europe's Forgotten Number System
This is super interesting
The first two classes I took at University were calculus and accounting.
Calculus is a rediculus subject, in my humble opinion, that has no practical application in the worlds of man. Add to this the fact that the class was taught in an auditorium with 350 people, by a graduate student who happened to be Chinese with very bad English. It was a very bad experience for me.
The accounting class was almost as bad. Remember Ben Stein from the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? Completely monotone, one speed, no clue how to connect with people and the most boring person you’ve ever met. Yes, that was my teacher, and my 19 year old, hormonal body couldn’t take it.
You’d think that I would be done with math and numbers, but I’m actually deeply curious about numbers. From the human calculator, to today’s subject, Europe’s forgotten number system. I find this video to be fascinating and I hope you do too…
