This should be the mission statement at any school you walk into. It will be at mine now.

Going back to my high school days, I've enjoyed a healthy mocking of too-cute ideas (dang you, Monty Python). In that light:

Creative geniuses are geniuses because they know how "two" think, instead of how "one" thinks.
• Geniuses look at problems in two different ways
• Geniuses visualize in 2D rather than Tenacious-D
• Geniuses eat produce, and play the Chicago Board of Trade to try to win back the cost of their produce-eating habits.
• Geniuses combine novels to come up with books like "The Sound and the Gatsby" or "The Lord of the Mockingbird".
• Geniuses have calculated that the relationship force "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" is somewhere between "Strong Nuclear" and "Electromagnetic".
• Geniuses think opposites attract: viva le difference.
• Geniuses think that "something representing a 2" squared is a metaphor.
• Geniuses prepare themselves for Gregorian Chants, especially ones that include dominos and checkers.
