100 najvecih zivucih genija na svijetu?!

Britanski casopis Telegraph je izbacio listu 100 najvecih zivucih genija. Na zalost, nisu razjasnili dobro kriterije sto oni podrazumijevaju pod pojmom genija (ili su jako loosely shvatili vec olabavljen naziv genija za onoga tko ima superioran talent). Pored ocekivanih Nobelovaca koji su zaradili svoje mjesto na toj listi radom na inzulinu, DNA te kompjuterima i drugim znanostima, nasli su se i npr.:

- Dolly Parton (ona je svoj status genija valjda zasluzila otkricem "tumblin' out of bed" i "workin' 9 to 5")
- Osama bin Laden (jel' on na toj listi zato sto je iznenadio Amerikance ili zato kaj ga jos nisu nasli?)
- Meryl Streep (izvanredna glumica, al' ima i boljih)
- Matt Groening (super su mi Simpsoni, al' ipak da je na listi i to jos ispred Stephen Hawkinga!)
- Michael Eavis (farmer, poznat kao organizator Glastonbury festivala)

Za one koji ne znaju pravu definiciju "genija", evo izvadak iz Wikipedije:
"A genius is a person of great intelligence, who shows an exceptional natural capacity of intellect, especially as shown in creative and original work. Geniuses always show strong individuality and imagination, and are not only intelligent, but unique and innovative. The term may also be applied to someone who is a polymath, such as Goethe (estimated IQ of 210) or Da Vinci (estimated IQ of 220), but a polymath is generally considered a well-rounded genius, gifted in many areas, e.g. math, physics, art, poetry, etc. Einstein, for instance, is a genius in physics, but not necessarily in other areas such as art or literature.

Although the term "genius" is sometimes used to denote the possession of a superior talent in any field, e.g., Roger Federer may be said to have a genius for tennis or Winston Churchill for statesmanship, in many of these cases the term is applied incorrectly and should instead be used specifically to denote an exceptional natural capacity of intellect and creative originality in areas of art, literature, music, science and mathematics."
