For the record, I have high school qualifications. I have never been to college. However, in my youth, I was a child prodigy who often read materials intended for those well above my physical age. In high school, I read Gibbons's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (not as part of a classroom curriculum, but simply because it was a big book I noticed one day in the library, it covered a topic I was fascinated in at the time and I took the sight of big books to be personal challenges). Of course Gibbons is 1700s and is outdated by today's standards, but this should show that I am not unfamiliar with the world of ancient Greece and Rome, as a certain someone on this thread impugns.
I may not have the benefit of a full formal education on the subject, never having had someone else actually teach me about ancient Greece and Rome, but I do know a fair bit about the topic, through my own self-study.
