Oldfilibuster’s Rhyme & Reason – E27 – Duelling is not a good idea if you happen to be a genius

Dueling was an insane practice that caused the senseless death of two young men who still had a life’s work ahead of them. At the time of their all too premature deaths, both Galois and Pushkin were young men who had already produced paradigm shifting material that fundamentally influenced the course of mathematics and literature. We can never know what more they undoubtedly had to offer.
