Technically Einstein was a physicist, but you know what? He was also really good at math, like you. You’re the only one of your friends who doesn’t use a phone to calculate the tip and, let’s be honest, you own at sudoku. Numbers on a whiteboard may be in the background of scientific, medical, and engineering feats but hey, they’re still there.
