The simple definition of genius is someone with “exception intellectual or creative ability.” That can certainly be said of the individuals Tidbits examines this week. • What constitutes a genius IQ level? Intelligence tests are based on one devised by French psychologist Alfred Binet in the 1950s. Average intelligence falls between a score of 85 and 114. It’s estimated that about half of the world’s population has an IQ between 90 and 110. A score of about 160 is considered to be a genius. About 1% of all the people in the world are above 136. It’s believed that Einstein’s IQ was 160, whileGordon Mozart’s is estimated at 165. Ballantyne

GENIUSES (continued): • Albert Einstein was responsible for “the world’s most famous equation,” E=mc2, the formula for mass-energy equivalence. Yet this German-born physicist failed his first college entrance exam, passing only the math and science sections, forcing him to attend a secondary school before retaking and passing the test a year later. Einstein’s 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. He came to America on a visit in 1933, and made the decision to stay when new German laws prohibited him from teaching at any university there. He renounced his German citizenship, took a teaching position at Princeton, and became a U.S. citizen in 1940. Regarding the topic of genius, he once said, “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” • Regarded as one of the greatest scientists of all times, Isaac Newton almost became a farmer. His mother urged him to follow in his late father’s footsteps on the family farm, but this genius disliked the profession intensely. He attended Cambridge University, studying mathematics, physics, and astronomy. We’re most familiar with his theory of gravitation, developed after watching an apple fall from a tree. Most folks have also heard of his law of inertia that states that an object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion. Another familiar Newton law is that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton was also responsible for the first practical reflecting telescope. Modern-day psychologists believe it’s quite possible that this genius had Asperger Syndrome, an autism disorder characterized by severe difficulties in social situations. • Although we think of Alexander Graham Bell as the inventor of the telephone, he had 17 other patents, including hydrofoil boats, aerial vehicles, and selenium cells. Bell was 29 years old and working on an improvement to the telegraph when he invented the telephone. As a young boy, he had come up with a talking doll that said, “Mama,” and at age 12, built a device for the process of dehusking wheat. Following the shooting of President James Garfield in 1881, Bell quickly devised an electromagnetic apparatus to try to locate the bullet lodged in Garfield’s abdomen. In 1906, this genius with a vision said, “The day will come when the man at

FOR- YOU! These facts are for our Tidbits readers, meaning they all begin with for-! • Back in 1917, B.C. Forbes was a financial columnist for the Hearst newspaper franchise. Along with Walter Drey, the general manager of the Magazine of Wall Street, he founded Forbes magazine, a financial publication containing investing and market topics. Today his grandson Malcolm Forbes, Jr. is CEO and Editor-in Chief of Forbes. This periodical is famous for its miscellaneous lists, such as the 400 Richest Americans, the World’s Billionaires, and America’s Most Trustworthy Companies. According to Forbes, Bill Gates has been the richest American for the past 20 consecutive years, with a current estimated worth of $72 billion. • On April 14, 1865, Actor John Wilkes Booth entered a private box at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. and shot President Abraham Lincoln with a .44-caliber single shot derringer as Lincoln watched a performance of Our American Cousin. Booth was a familiar face around the theater and a personal friend of the owner John T. Ford. The structure was used as an office after the assassination for 28 years until the interior collapsed, killing 22 clerks and injuring 68 others. The damage was repaired and the building remodeled into a government warehouse, used until 1931, when it became a Lincoln museum. In 1968, a complete restoration of the historic theater was finished, and it reopened as a live performance venue. The site receives about a million visitors annually. • The old English word “forsooth” simply means “indeed,” “in truth,” “certainly.” • The colorless, flammable, odorous chemical known as formaldehyde is used in building materials, including pressed-wood products, along with many household products.

GENIUSES (continued): the telephone will be able to see the distant person to whom he is speaking.” • Robert “Bobby” Fischer was an American chess master, who at age 14, won the World Chess Championship, the youngest winner of the title. At 15, he was the youngest international grandmaster of all time. This son of a biophysicist father and a teacher, then nurse, then physician mother, Bobby learned chess when he was six years old, using the instructions from a chess set bought at a candy store. As a genius with an IQ of 187, he dropped out of high school at age 16 to dedicate himself to the game. His famous 1972 world championship match against the USSR’s Boris Spassky put Fischer in the public eye. After that match, he became a recluse and didn’t play a competitive game in public for nearly 20 years.

Exposure can be especially irritating to the eyes, nose, and throat, causing coughing and inflammation of the respiratory tract. • When gold was discovered in California at Sutter’s Mill in 1848, thousands flocked to the area seeking treasure. Most people headed there in 1849, giving them the nickname the Forty-Niners. That year, San Francisco’s population jumped from 800 to more than 50,000. California’s head count increased by 86,000 people in two years. The folks who struck it rich weren’t the miners, but rather those who created businesses to serve the prospectors. Two well-known companies that came out of the era are Wells Fargo and Levi Strauss. • Back in 1912, Westinghouse employees Daniel O’Conor and Herbert Faber teamed up on an

invention to be used in electrical insulation. It was made of wrapped woven fabric coated with a thermosetting resin, which was flattened and cured in a press. They intended their product to replace mica in the insulation, and dubbed their invention Formica, because it was a substitute for mica. Today we most often think of Formica as a heat-resistant laminate with melamine resin for use on kitchen countertops.

GENIUSES (continued): spent just three months in public school before his mother chose to deal with his learning disability by homeschooling him. Although we mainly remember his “big” inventions, such as the stock ticker, voting machine, motion picture camera and projector, phonograph, and incandescent light bulbs, Edison was also the inventor of waxed paper! As to being a genius, Edison had this to say, “Genius is one percent inspiration and 99% perspiration.” • Kim Ung-Yong’s IQ is approximately 210, perhaps the highest in the world. By his third birthday, he was reading Japanese, Korean, German, and English, and was enrolled as a physics student at South Korea’s Hanyang University. At 8, he was invited by NASA to study in the U.S. and work for the organization. After 10 years with NASA, he returned to Korea and obtained his doctorate in civil engineering.

▶ There are actually 1,793 islands in the “Thousand Islands” of the St. Lawrence River. ▶ Niagara Falls erodes its way backwards at the steady rate of about 1.2 meters per year. ▶ At the Scottish Festival & Highland Games in Fergus, Ontario, a highlight is the caber toss in which competitors attempt to throw a wooden pole end-over-end. The poles, being 15 feet long (4.5 meters) and weighing 55 lbs (25 kg), must flip once and land with the small end facing away from the person who threw it, pointing between 9:00 and 3:00 on an imaginary clock face. Accuracy is more important than distance. In 2013, they tried to set a world record for the greatest number of simultaneous cable tossers when 60 men heaved their cables at the same moment. Unfortunately, they missed the record by one because not all of the tosses qualified for the criteria.

• Born in Montreal, Quebec in 1931, William Shatner got his start as a child performer on Canadian Broadcasting’s radio programs. While earning his Bachelor of Commerce degree from Montreal’s McGill University, Shatner spent his summers performing with the Royal Mount Theater Company, training as a Shakespearean actor. After graduation, he joined the Canadian National Repertory Theatre in Ottawa, acting regularly in the Shakespearean Stratford Festival of Canada in Stratford, Ontario. • A far cry from his Shakespearean roots, Shatner was cast as Ranger Bob on the Canadian Howdy Doody Show in 1954. Although his first movie role was the part of “a crook” in the 1951 Canadian film, The Butler’s Night Off, Shatner’s first big role was at age 26 in 1958’s The Brothers Karamazov, along with Yul Brynner. The early ‘60s were filled with lower-budget movies and TV guest spots for Shatner. • It was Shatner’s casting as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, commander of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise in 1966 that sealed his fame. Even though Star Trek was cancelled after just 79 episodes over three seasons due to low Nielsen ratings, the series became a cult classic with thousands of followers. The short-lived program generated five additional TV series, 12 movies, and books, video games, toys, and action figures. • After Star Trek’s cancellation, life became tough for Shatner. He had been typecast as Captain Kirk and offers for roles were few. His wife divorced him, taking much of his money with her, and Shatner lost his home. He lived in a pickup truck camper, hoping for better roles to come along. He gueststarred on a number of game shows and did some TV commercials to make ends meet. • In 1979, Paramount Pictures chose to produce a Star Trek movie, reuniting the original cast. The sequel, The Wrath of Khan, came along in 1982, followed by six more films, ending with 1994’s Star Trek Generations with the death of Kirk. • In the midst of filming the Star Trek movies, Shatner landed the role of police sergeant T. J. Hooker, a popular television series from 1982 to 1986. The reality show Rescue 911 followed in 1989, a seven-year stint. At age 73, he joined the cast of the legal drama The Practice in 1997, a series that spun off into Boston Legal, starring as the eccentric attorney Denny Crane, winning two Emmys for the role. Shatner has also been the spokesman for Priceline for 15 years, as well as writing several Star Trek novels, including The Ashes of Eden and Avenger. • Shatner and his co-star Leonard “Spock” Nimoy both suffer from tinnitus, which is a ringing in the ears. The hearing of both men was damaged while filming a 1967 episode of Star Trek when they stood too close to a special effects explosion. • Although he retains his Canadian citizenship, the 82-year-old Shatner, an avid horseman, and his wife own a 360-acre horse farm near Lexington, Kentucky. He has been honored with both a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a maple leaf on the Canadian Walk of Fame.
