April 18, 2005

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour.
Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s
relativity.

                               –Albert Einstein

You can read more about this genius in a great article by CNN.

    …and that illustrates what (I think) is the difference between smart and genius. Smart is understanding relativity; genius is being able to explain it so simply that others can’t help but understand you.

    True genius is meant to be shared.

    (And, if you don’t understand what I’m saying, don’t worry. It’s proof that I’m not a genius myself!)

    Totally. Like Arthurs used to say all the time (and I’m sure he still does): using the known to explain the unknown.
