    LIFE is like Photography. You use the Negatives to develop. The Pictures to prove the beauty.

    It should be interesting to know what make these geniuses tick so to to speak since the neurons in the brains are wired different from other "standard" human beings.

    The hassles are the barang barang that come with it. You have to be the head of some scientific/maths committee/journal. You won't have time for your own researches. Those in the research field will know.
