    It was excellent

    Erdos was one weird dude.  But he seemed to have a good life.

      Erdos was uncommon, for sure, but I think he created the life he wanted for himself. Which is really the yardstick for evaluating a successful life.

      And it is only in that endeavor that I might ever have hope of an Erdos number less than infinity!
