ALBERT EINSTEIN

we seem to have lost a little thread just now that did display
some clever ripostes from our resident wits . . . . nothing
off, vulgar or offensive

It began with one of Albert's minor, droller quotes , unlike when he
was at his very best - e.g. -

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.

Now there's a bizarre coincidence. I am preparing questions for a quiz I'm running soon, and one of the questions is :

"On 14th. March 1879, a man was born in Ulm, Germany. He died in Princeton, New Jersey in 1955. Who was he?"


Of course the answer is Albert Einstein.

His brain(most of it) is sloshing around in a jar at Princeton. Some slices were sent to scientists in the US for study.


His eyes are in New Jersey, somewhere.


The pacifist who urged FDR to build the atomic bomb. Still a good subject for a lively debate.

It is time well spent to ponder his humility, his tolerance
and his compassion

oh that the destroyers were able to take five and take a leaf
or two from his book

He also seems to be one of the few genuine geniuses(sp?) who wasn't three quarters loopy.

Forgive me....

It was me who destroyed that which I created. Seems I had Albert situated in the "desert" instead of in a restaurant being tempted by a dessert.


It went like this:


Did you leave any room for dessert?
The waitress asked of the retired Mr Einstein.
To which he replied, "I have the Time but not the Space!"

I still cling to the hope he had Marilyn Monroe.

Relatively speaking.

He is neither a spelling Nazi (a new cliche if ever there was one)
or a pedant who pulls another up for getting Albert Einstein wrong.

Harvard is to be applauded for his modesty and his forthcomingness


with a tug of the forelock from me
for I too am modest . . . with much to be modest about

You can imagine Einstein on a plane being asked by the hostie
would you like a drink? He might say "what are the options?"
To which she might say "Yes or no."

In which case he'd have to give her best

Yes or No

To quote Mr Einstein: "The only reason for time is so that everything does not happen at once."


So, in the Einstein brain the implied definition of everything must be meant to be any number greater then 2, or putting it another way, "everything" is 3 or greater.

Didn't know that about AE's brain, but I know that the brain of Paul Broca, who did amazing work on brain anatomy, is in a jar in Musée de l'Homme. Carl Sagan wrote of Broca's Brain in an excellent book about 30 years ago.

dazdaz1, did you have any dual time first?


If I was the creator of this thread, at this point, I would destroy it. But alas, it is not mine to do so.
