Geocache Description:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Albert Einstein

So, you're not a rocket scientist, brain surgeon or mensa member? Have no fear, this puzzle is for you. So how is it that a puzzle with Einstein in the title doesn't have a difficulty of 5 when the name Einstein is synonymous with genius?

Well, Albert Einstein(14 March 1879 to 18 April 1955), theoretical physicist, philosopher, author, recipient of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics and perhaps the most influential scientist to ever live, believed that we all possess some sort of genius whether it be in music, art, or some other talent. He once said that “imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

There are many caches dedicated to sports teams and athletes, and while Albert Einstein may not have a rookie card or bobble head likeness, he certainly was an amazing man and mathlete deserving of a cache dedication.

Insanity! Genius - AMAZING!

Cache was replaced but I had to move it since the old location was no longer accessible due to overgrowth and poison ivy. I will not be changing the puzzle. If you solved prior to 9/25/15, please note that cache has moved.

*** Subtract .005 from N and .012 from W. I will update the geochecker to reflect change. ***
