The Legend of Frankenstein

The legend of Frankenstein is one of the most gruesome stories ever imagined. This giant monster is made out of body parts stolen from the graveyard, sewn together by a mad scientist in a laboratory, and finally he is brought to life by electricity. Do not try this at home with your older brother just because he is a couch potato.

Brains, Bodies and Electricity

The story of Frankenstein was written in a time when scientists were making huge discoveries with electricity. It was over 200 years ago and a scientist by the name of Luigi Galvani had just discovered that it was our brains sending electric signals to tell our bodies what to do. Scientists everywhere started experimenting with electricity, brains and bodies... including some very gruesome practices. Soon after these creepy stories, the story of Frankenstein was written.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

In 1816, Mary Shelley was only 18 years old when she wrote the story of Frankenstein. Mary got her ideas from all the news about scientists stealing bodies from graveyards and working on bringing them back to life. She had many dreams of these stories and in these dreams the scientist actually brought the dead corpse back to life.

Then she told her dreams as stories to people, including her boyfriend Percy. Percy encouraged her to write her story onto paper and it was so good that they transformed it into one of the greatest novels ever written… Frankenstein!

It’s important to note that Frankenstein was actually the mad scientist and not the monster. It was only later when the monster was seen and used in many stories without the scientist that the monster became named “Frankenstein”.

It is much obvious that in this society nowadays smart people have the most advantages of being successful and socially acccepted based on their careers, position, personal success, fame, power and all that upper middle class stuff. But at the same time while being 'smart', they are also facing all kinds of stress and struggles such as trying the best at showing the perfect them to the society, mantaining all the success, fame and power all the time while the list goes on and on. But happy people on the other hand, or in other words, are happy because they live in the moment. They don't care , or don't need to care what others think of them because they are not living under the eyes and sayings of other people. They enjoy being themselves in their way. Although nothing is perfect, but they tend to make the best out of the many things. And they don't get easiy tired of trying to become the best of the bests, as most smart people tend to do.So if i would choose, i would rather be happy than smart. Well, then the 'smart' people you've spoken about are not really all that smart after all,  are they? Cuz if they were really all that smart they would've realised that they shouldn't care about what others think about them. Am I right? Great point ! Thanks for the reminder ! So what do you think about being smart or happy ?
