I’m proud that Brian May did this. So many people seem to think that education is a means to an end. Like once you have a livelihood you no longer need education. Wrong! Education should be a quest that never ends for everyone. Brian May has all the money he would ever need yet here he is, getting data and writing a thesis.
I’m surprised we don’t see other successful people pursue formal education more. We have all these actors and athletes who “retire” in their 20’s and 30’s who don’t do shit but try to make more money as entrepreneurs and live lives of luxury and hedonism. WTF. Learn more, people. Learn a lot more. It’s not work, it’s fun.
