    • Decimis from the Slack Channel asks
      • A lot of times on the MEP, you guys mention what college did not teach you. So not counting the actual degree, do you feel that going to a college is absolutely necessary to learn what you guys know now or is collage nothing more than just a structured way of learning what can be learned elsewhere through personal study, research, and experience?
    • Jarrett from the Slack Channel asks
      • What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
