However, if you struggle with Einstein’s equations, you might have a problem. Have you checked your basal ganglia lately? How about your frontal and spatial lobes? Scientists are now hypothesizing that math-challenged people are suffering from deficits in these brain regions.
So you’re no longer simply bad at math. You now have a bona fide (well, almost) disability. You can now join the ranks of the millions who have been diagnosed with one deficiency or another.
You can now starting worrying about short-term memory and the like. You have now been labeled, branded even. You now exist in medical journals. You now have "special needs."
Congratulations are not in order.
