I was reading Kafka's biography. It seems he had to cry his way through math (like most of us). The other guy is Hugo Bergmann. A famous philosopher and another victim of copying (also like most of us).
i had a friend who tried that with me, he knew i would not let him copy, so he sat next to me and told me he would try to get the answers from me through osmosis (it was a bio class [on an odd side note, osmosis is one of my fave words, apply it to anything, it will make you giggle])
Yeah, what's ironic is that just when he started becoming happy (like he finally found his purpose in life), he dies of consumption. It's pretty sad how he almost cried when the doctor said his health was improving. ;-;
