The, uh, in college, I had two physics professors that I talk about often. And, they, they asked a lot of their students. They were tough. They were very good. They were very interested in making sure that we really understood, uh, the principles that we were studying; this was physics. They were both physics professors. Uh, I always think about them. Uh, that was one of the most challenging times in my academic career, and, uh, uh, I've been back to, to visit them a number of times. There's one, one of them has since passed away. But, uh, those were some of the biggest motivators.
