Probably Nikola Tesla. Dude invented a WIRELESS way to distribute power to a city safely.
Agreed. Tesla is underrated. He might not have discovered electricity, but he popularized it.
Quote from NecroParade
Dennis Ritchie contributed a hell of a lot to modern software, though surprisingly few people have even heard of him.
Fortunately, I've heard of Dennis Ritchie. He invented C, B and several other incredible things.
Along with the above mentioned, I also find Leonard Euler, Dmitri Mendeleev, Charles Babbage and Alan Turing underrated.
Jan 13, 2012I have some science obsessions as well as being able to do math very well in my head. Being a gamer, I'm better at PC FPS than most people and I can adapt to console FPS very well too. For example, I can play a console game I've never played before in my life, quickly learn it and level myself with expert players. I also seem to be good at some types of art, but I'm not specifically sure what.Posted in: General Off Topic
Jan 12, 2012Are you someone who is aware of the many undervalued geniuses that have made immeasurable contributions to science, politics and technology yet hardly anyone has heard of them?Posted in: General Off Topic
In my opinion, John Von Neumann was one of the most underrated scientists. He was a polymath who made hundreds of contributions to computer science, mathematics, geometry, theoretical physics, programming, cellular automata and more.
Despite this, almost everyone I know has never heard of him.
Please, tell us of your little known geniuses so that we may all become less ignorant!

"I think, therefore I am."
- Rene Descartes.
"Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?"
- Stephen Hawking
Jan 12, 2012You can make assumptions as a theoretical physicist but you need many years of schooling to actually be able to weigh those assumptions as truth or fact.Posted in: General Off Topic
And yes, theoretical physics would be an amazing job.

I have an underground laboratory, where I clone myself and use it for own advantages. Soon the world will be mine!
I actually considered growing a strain of E. Coli bacteria in my evil bedroom laboratory and using it as a poison to destroy my enemies.

Only thing that grows for me is my rock collection and quartz garden
That reminds me, I have a vast collection of fossils in my basement I need to go through.
Jan 9, 2012A person in my biology class thought the word "biome" was spelled with four letters, even though the word was correctly spelled on the test question he was reading. He later claimed the e was silent, therefore, the word biome was spelled with four.Posted in: General Off Topic
Jan 9, 2012You can't avoid talking to people completely. People like your family members are people you will have to socialize with eventually. However, you can avoid conversing as much as possible.Posted in: General Off Topic
If people say hi to you, don't respond, as it is often be an attempt to start a conversation or form an acquaintance. Cross your arms often because it is not an inviting gesture. Wear black and yellow striped shirts or clashing colors because these often suggest that you want to be left alone. If someone legitly asks you a question, it's best to respond to it however. In these cases, be frank and abrupt. Avoid extreme emotion.
Worf is a good role model.
