Einstein's original 1905 paper on Relativity was deemed incomprehensible by many academic mummies of the age, until Max Planck gave it a thumbs up.Petenoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3722233.post-18136938492998350252009-09-29T06:20:25.546-05:002009-09-29T06:20:25.546-05:00I think you can tell pretty fast whether a paper i...I think you can tell pretty fast whether a paper is a serious attempt or not.
