good points. i always figured fire was 'discovered' by accident.
guy dropped a piece of flint which sparked and caught on fire.
maybe, 'the guy who learned how to control fire' would be a better explanation.

what was the guys name who developed advanced algebra and many math sciences only from a childrens math book? the name escapes me but I belive he lived in a cave and didnt know how to read but somehow managed to contribute greatly to the field of math. That guy was pretty smart lol. anyone know this story or his name?
Ramanujan first encountered formal mathematics at age 10. He demonstrated a natural ability, and was given books on advanced trigonometry written by S. L. Loney.[2] He mastered them by age 12, and even discovered theorems of his own, including independently re-discovering Euler's identity. He demonstrated unusual mathematical skills at school, winning accolades and awards. By 17, Ramanujan conducted his own mathematical research on Bernoulli numbers and the Euler–Mascheroni constant.

LMAO!! Did I offend you in some way? I seriously doubt I am anywhere near "the smartest human of all time". I'm not a dumbarse, but do have some brains.
