WRITING MATHEMATICS ON GLASS ‘SIGN OF GENIUS’
HOLLYWOOD – It has been found that writing equations on glass surfaces, such as windows, is a legitimate sign of genius.
The revelations came in the wake of the new Ben Affleck film The Accountant in which Bruce Wayne plays an autistic hitman. To relax he writes equations on glass, following in a long line of geniuses such as Will Hunting, Lex Luthor from The Social Network and John Nash who was played by Maximus Decimus Meridius in A Beautiful Mind. Scientist and genius Dr. Patrick Stewart said:
Yes, writing equations is clever – we all know that- but what separates the boffins from the Bozos is the ability to write on glass. First doing it without making that annoying squeaky noise and then not going half of it on your shirt sleeve.
