comment Old oxford scholarship question: $a^ab^b \ge a^bb^a$
@TheMathTroll "Gracious" as in appreciative, modest and endearing. Don't make me change my mind! I was just trying to be nice. I meant no offense. I was trying to complement you, not enrage you.

@dustin Hmm, looks like you're interested in quant fin and operations research. Very spry indeed, entering a PhD in EE program at age 94! You've been blazing through your degrees too! Finance bachelor's degree at age 89 or 90 etc.

@dustin If you are 94 years of age, that is not a problem and you should not be criticized for it. We have an 82 year old moderator on EL&U SE (although it has been rough going, but that is mostly a community issue, maybe due to too much respect.)

comment Puzzle of gold coins in the bag
@StephenMontgomery-Smith Wow, that's an excellent find. (Parenthetical aside: It is a television show, not a motion picture. I think many things that preceded my birth date have value, e.g. The Merchant of Venice ;o)

What does your current title, per your Quora profile, see quora.com/Anastasiya-Romanova "Integrator @Mathematics StackExchange" entail? I'm unfamiliar with that term.

Anastasiya, this is tacky behavior, asking for badge earning help on Math SE in your Quora profile! "Thank you so much for the Quora users who have already helped me to earn a gold badge: Publicity for my post: The Monster Integral. Right now, I'm trying to earn other gold badges for my posts: The Wicked Integral, Integral Contest & Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and Famous Question for my post: The Monster Integral (>‿◠)✌" You actually link to your Quora profile from your Math SE profile too!

Did you see this page too on that site? It helps a little.

comment Best book for a casual pure mathematician?
You need to know calculus and linear algebra to be able to understand real analysis, for example. Math is axiomatic for a good reason ;O) It builds that way, like a beautiful artwork or mansion.

@teadawg1337 Oh 1337 one, you are correct about points, but I assure you that I have been an active commenter and am capable of moderating an SE site in my area of study. I have lots more points in History of Math and Science SE :O)
