Later in the afternoon the clouds moved in. Still stayed warm, 72º.
William James Sidis was quite possibly the smartest man who ever lived. Sidis had the highest IQ ever recorded with a score estimated to be 50 to 100 points higher than Albert Einstein's. Born in Boston in 1898, William James Sidis made headlines in the early 20th century as a child prodigy with an amazing intellect. He could read the New York Times before he was 2. At age 11, he already mastered over 40 languages and entered Harvard University as one of the youngest students in the school's history. He attempted a political career but died young (at age 46), from a brain hemorrhage.

- 1 pound linguine
- 3 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
- 3/4 pound fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/3 cup hoisin sauce (see Note)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 scallions, sliced diagonally
What To Do:
- In a 6-quart soup pot, cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain, rinse, drain again and set aside in the colander.
- In the same pot, heat the oil over medium heat, then add the chicken and sauté for 5 to 8 minutes, or until no pink remains, stirring constantly. Add the mushrooms, garlic, ginger, and cayenne pepper; cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the hoisin sauce and soy sauce, then return the pasta to the pot and toss until well coated. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the pasta is heated through. Add the sliced scallions, toss, and serve immediately.
Test Kitchen Tips
- Just a friendly reminder that Hoisin sauce can usually be found next to the soy sauce in the ethnic food section of the supermarket!
