It's amazing that we were able to reduce all these interactions to just these 4 equations. It's a shame everyone knows Einstein but only physicists know Maxwell.

EDIT: I love that the engineers got offended. :D

Uh, I'm an electrical engineer, but I know that in general relativistic form, they collapse into one tensor equation. Do I get bonus points for reading Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler? Or am I derided for not knowing what string theory says about them?
