    In 1935, a rabbi in Princeton showed him a clipping of the Ripley’s column with the headline “Greatest living mathematician failed in mathematics.” Einstein laughed. “I never failed in mathematics,” he replied, correctly. “Before I was fifteen I had mastered differential and integral calculus.” In primary school, he was at the top of his class and “far above the school requirements” in math. By age 12, his sister recalled, “he already had a predilection for solving complicated problems in applied arithmetic,” and he decided to see if he could jump ahead by learning geometry and algebra on his own.

    I suppose this means Giotto never drew a pefect circle either...

    You and millions of others....

    I think it's because we only use 10 percent of our brain. Except of course Einstein, he used 11.

    Nobody has quite yet figured out which 90% we can safely remove from the skull, but hey.

    Backed down? This is exactly what is happening with Obamacare, where's your back down thread on it?
