This is clearly not what I said.

Also, I never implied my training to be 'special'. I'm sure people were
taught math similarly.

Finally, and very important: I would like to ask that you stop speculating
about what I did or did not learn, or when, to try and keep this civil, and
focus on the technical discussion, and not the people.
