From chat gpt3 (I hope it got this one right):
It is difficult for me to say exactly what Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik would say to a student who regretted not learning more when they were younger. However, I can tell you a little bit about Rabbi Soloveitchik’s views on education and learning.

Rabbi Soloveitchik was a prominent rabbi and philosopher who wrote extensively on Jewish thought and practice. He believed that education was a lifelong process and that it was never too late to learn and grow. He argued that each person has the capacity to learn and grow throughout their entire lives, and that the pursuit of knowledge and understanding is an essential part of being human.

With this in mind, it is likely that Rabbi Soloveitchik would encourage a student who regretted not learning more when they were younger to continue pursuing knowledge and learning throughout their life. He might also encourage the student to view their regret as an opportunity to redouble their efforts and to embrace the challenge of learning new things.

My comment on the new Israeli government cancelling the sugared soda tax:
interesting that some folks who are makpid (punctilious) on not using the same plate for meat and fish are not makpid on their own health bderech hateva (in the normal course of events)
