Since no one else has taken the bait, and I don't qualify as a genius myself, I'll post a relevant exchange between Sandow and Ramanujan:

Sandow: Ramanju, they all call you a genius.

Ramanujan: What! Me, a genius! Look at my elbow, it will tell you the story.

Sandow: What is all this, Ramanju? Why is it so rough and black?

Ramanujan: My elbow has become rough and black in making a genius of me! Night and day I do my calculations on slate. It is too slow to look for a rag to wipe it with. I wipe the slate almost every few minutes with my elbow.

Sandow: So, you are a mountain of industry. Why use a slate when you have to do so much calculation? Why not use paper?

Ramanujan: When food itself is a problem, how can I find money for paper? I may require four reams of paper every month.
