Even if Ly Tong did not receive his PhD, he is gereantaud at least a Masters Degree which he has not bragged of owning. Furthermore, he should know better that in the process of pursuing his PhD, he would have had to take state governed multiple choice and written exams which he again has failed to mentioned. But then again, Ly Tong is such an exceptional human being that any governmenal and educational system would grant him an alternative program to achieve both his educational ambition and personal pursuit.That's ok Ly Tong, you still rock in my mind. You have at least a BS degree in something or a degree in BS.
