Watched Veritasium's video on mathematics's problems of Completeness, Consistency, and Decidability. I'd known of Turing's work on Decidability via the Halting Problem, and I knew Gödel's work on paradoxes but I hadn't recognized Gödel was the one who determined math was incomplete and there's no way to prove consistency.

I wish math had been taught with more history in my school years. Would have been way more interesting. I was OK at it but found the way it was taught to be tediously boring.
