This summary must be from a 2 minute visit to Wiki.
What why is trying to say is that only those who work in a field where accomplishment can be measured by TRUE or FALSE, 1 or 0, are eligible for genius status. I propose that those scientists who step away from the lab and opine on other subjects, with the expectation that the public should consider it more than lay opinion of an average joe, should have their genius points reduced. Pauling, Oppenheimer, Einstein, for starters.
I think we've established that there are but three geniuses: Newton, Einstein, and Mozart. None of whom are American (asterisk Einstein). Here's a list of people who lived here who were really good at doing stuff: Einstein, Teller, Dirac, Pauling, Schreiffer, Bell, Edison, Disney, Gates, Jobs, Bernstein, Gershwin, Whitman, Frost, Hemingway, ok, this is tedious. Oh yeah and Tesla (see below)
I was worried about he and crazyquick. They are among the more emotionally mature posters, and can opine on all things sartorial. I'm glad to see the gunslinger back in Dodge.
Where everybody knows your name. The story of us.
So you did.Jimmy Edison also came up with the first prototype of the Coors punch top smooth pour beer can.
How can we be certain?
Beat you to it
This thread has become a sort of "home room" or virtual water cooler. It is quiet most of the time, and then a flurry of activity occurs, not all of it focused on Transparency or Moderation. If a mod like emptym wants to keep this streamlined, I'll comply, but it has been nice to have a specific area to go once in a while and check in. Kind of like the designated meeting place at an amusement park. I'd be happy to open up a "Home Room" thread, but perhaps a mod's...
How interesting that you pick the three names that pop into my head every time I hear the word. Yes, if you want to talk in those terms, we really don't have an American genius.
