I didn't -- I'm wrong as Heart said -- but I knew I recognized the face and that is how I recognized it -- they could almost be twins..

Tom Hopkins quit college after 3 months and went on to be a multi millionaire less than five years later:

It may not be considered in the self-help / educational gendre -- but he is by far one of the best motivational authors I've ever read.

(*crap -- thought I had that too until I read the bio)

Added note -- slightly off-topic (sorry Heart) -- but this is perhaps the best book I've ever read on motivational sales technics:

(and I do have that one stuffed away somewhere and that's where I was recalling the picture...Now I'm back to square one on the genius thing. *sighs.

You've got to give us something to go on here. One keyword at least (e.g. Science), maybe a riddle or something. Please?

Congrats SharkShark. Guess I really wasn't going crazy -- I had seen his picture before.

For Genius #2 my first guess would have been world champion chess player Bobby Fischer who's IQ is measured at 180, but I'm already sure that's wrong. I'm guessing that picture is circa 1950's early 60's and Bobby would have been just a bit too young to look like that then.

CONGRATS: ATNO/TW!!

The picture is non other than the great Bobby Fischer.. Bobby was known and is still known as the best chess player that ever existed.. He became a chessmaster at the age of 15.. He is a genius at strategy and one of the most sought out player of the game but always with the question "where is Bobby Fisher?".. With his 180 IQ, he is a real living genius in every way..

*lol -- you're kidding? That was the first name I thought of when I saw the avatar. It was such a close resemblance to all the pictures I've ever seen of him, but it just didn't quite look like any picture I'd ever seen. In fact the basic first Google search I did showed me all the pictures I remembered, but I've never seen that one. That's quite a good picture of him.

One other tidbit I did pick up was this:
http://www.amiannoying.com/(gkn2pi45ewv5wdnih20neq55)/view.aspx?id=4355

He has quite an interesting history.
