Look at professional sports....not everyone can play in the NFL/NHL/etc
My sister is an MD. I called her the other day to ask for advice because I'm doing the college thing again after dropping out and playing poker for 5 years. I asked her if she was the oldest one in most of her classes because she had initially dropped out as well. She said yes. I said did that ever make you question your intelligence? Basically- she said 'no, there's are going to be classes where you don't understand a thing- cellular biology was like that for me, but just be persistent. The kids in your classes who you used to be- not having to work hard to float by- are all still kiddies making kiddy mistakes. Be wise, not intelligent. Be persistent. That's the most important ingredient in success.'

EDIT: To your last point- isn't there that story about Michael Jordan not making his high school basketball team and using that as motivation to work harder? I guess if you're an overweight 27 year old Jewish kid like me, (27 years old is still a kid right) you'll not be taking the mound in any mlb games. At least not this year. There's always spring training next year right?

The article is great, but I'm disappointed with the video. Thought it'd be his theories that would disprove Einstein's theory of relativity (or at least that that would be the topic), but it turned out to be integration by parts. That's easy -_-. I stopped the video then, so I don't know, maybe he does talk about his theories later.

I'm not going to argue my anecdote versus your anecdote. Effort will always only get you so far. Effort is definitely the primary factor (by far) to graduating college. Being a genius just means you don't have to work as hard. On the other hand, brilliant scientific ideas require and extraordinary intelligence combined with that effort.

School through university is almost all effort. Your professional career is probably closer to a 50/50 split between effort and natural ability. That's why the smartest people excel, get promoted...

None of us here could do what that kid did when he is 12, no matter how much effort we bring to the table.

The kid made a mistake when he did integration by parts.
the integral of sinxdx is -cosx + c
so...
xsinx - integral of sinxdx is
xsinx + cosx + c
NOT
xsinx - cosx + c

If he makes a mistake when copying examples from one his textbooks, how flawed do you think his theories will be?
