College Dropout Became Mathematical Genius After Mugging

Read it.

Working behind the counter at a futon store in Tacoma, Wash., is not the place you would expect to find a man some call a mathematical genius of unprecedented proportions.

Jason Padgett, 41, sees complex mathematical formulas everywhere he looks and turns them into stunning, intricate diagrams he can draw by hand. He’s the only person in the world known to have this incredible skill, which he obtained by sheer accident just a decade ago.

Guess the demand for mathematical geniuses in the job market isn’t what it once was.

    All of the mathematicians I’ve ever met seemed to be brain damaged.

    A couple more muggings and Padgett might become an economist.
