    We six-percenters are the most dangerous...as we not only make discoveries, but have the will to exploit them.

    I blame the radiation sickness.

    (I love Mental Floss, too)

    As intelligent as the people that win the Nobels are, they are still people, just as prone to doing the things that all people do as the rest of us are.

    there are two types of genius. the ones that are like ordinary people except they work harder and are extremely focused. and the free spirits that have ideas that mere mortals could never imagine.

    something about our society has discouraged or buried the latter.
