    Those sinewaves have too much harmonic distortion! :D

    Even his signature is cyclic.

    In 1886, Heinrich Hertz was first to prove electromagnetic waves existed. Maxwell had predicted them a few years before.
    Electromagnetic activity ceased in Heinrich's brain when he was 36. Most greats make their contributions when they're in their 20s. Usually nothing much happens after they hit the late 30s, anyway.

    Nah, that was in the old days when the smartest people in the world went to universities...

    So on his birthday he's turned 155... Hz.

    If it's any consolation, you aren't alone.
    But another way of looking at it: When Heinrich cps was my age, he had been dead for 22 years.
