I was in the class – I had attended very few classes at IIT. The professor started writing the proof of the ultimate equation, that almost everyone ‘intelligent’ is aware of.
It was fully covered in slightly over a page. I remember that one of main points was that the speed of light was same regarding of how fast one was going.
There were some tricks involved. Won’t deny that. But had a feeling that a monkey with a few equations and enough time would have arrived at the same equation – E = MC**2.
A saying has come to my mind. Be silent and let people think you might be an idiot. Open your mouth and confirm their doubts.
