Meanwhile, most people are missing injection of "glutamate" for more neurotransmissions. On the other hand, it could mean that all the people who are called weirdos: psychics, voyants etc.. who are able to perceive paranormal events are geniuses?

Yet another story about Einstein, possibly the most overated scientist of all time. Einstein is elementary school for me. Certainly not overrated, just becoming outdated.

Einstein got alot of his ideas from the under-credited Nikola Tesla who was the real genius, he was way smarter than albert he was just before his time and thomas edison took all his credit.
