Where's Einstein?

Ever since I step foot onto Cambridge University, I've been asking myself this question. Where are all the Einstein?

Ok, there are smart students. Abundance of them. But I haven't met many people that I could use the word 'genius' on them.

That is, until, I stepped into the world-famous Cavendish Lab today. I talked to a handful of researchers there and immediately I knew that here's where all the "Einsteins" are. It's difficult to describe in exact words, but suffice to say that the people there are 'hard-core'. I need to hang out with them more...

(FYI, up to before this, I reserve the word 'genius' only for my friend Foong Yake Ho)
