He had to have a note to remember what to buy at the store.

32. Love Brian! He's my avatar!!

Brains, great rock guitarist and still cute after all these years.

Another great Studmuffin of Physics. The previous ones are Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, and Carl Sagan.

The ones in the 21st century are Brian May and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

3. Who was also a civil rights activist

http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2007/04/albert-einstein-civil-rights-activist/

In 1946, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist traveled to Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the alma mater of Langston Hughes and Thurgood Marshall and the first school in America to grant college degrees to blacks. At Lincoln, Einstein gave a speech in which he called racism a disease of white people, and added, I do not intend to be quiet about it. He also received an honorary degree and gave a lecture on relativity to Lincoln students.

4. Not being a gambler, I'd bet my life savings he'd vote for Bernie Sanders.

But it shouldn't take a genius to see how genuine and trustworthy a president he would make.

titled "On Socialism" and was himself a democratic socialist, just like Bernie.

today.

His hair is great, and so is Bernie's.

I wonder how much, if anything would be different had he not turned it down.

21. And he wasn't a big fan of Israel to begin with.

"I should much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state. Apart from practical consideration, my awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power no matter how modest. I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain -- especially from the development of a narrow nationalism within our own ranks, against which we have already had to fight strongly, even without a Jewish state."


Albert Einstein, on April 17, 1938

20 Things You Need to Know About Einstein

Everything you need to know about the smartest man of the 20th century


By Walter IsaacsonThursday, Apr. 05, 2007


Did Einstein flunk math?

One widely held belief about Einstein is that he failed math as a student, an assertion that is made, often accompanied by the phrase "as everyone knows," by scores of books and thousands of websites designed to reassure underachieving students. A Google search of Einstein failed math turns up more than 500,000 references. The allegation even made it into the famous "Ripley's Believe it or Not!" newspaper column.

Alas, Einstein's childhood offers history many savory ironies, but this is not one of them. In 1935, a rabbi in Princeton showed him a clipping of the Ripley's column with the headline "Greatest living mathematician failed in mathematics." Einstein laughed. "I never failed in mathematics," he replied, correctly. "Before I was fifteen I had mastered differential and integral calculus." In primary school, he was at the top of his class and "far above the school requirements" in math. By age 12, his sister recalled, "he already had a predilection for solving complicated problems in applied arithmetic," and he decided to see if he could jump ahead by learning geometry and algebra on his own. His parents bought him the textbooks in advance so that he could master them over summer vacation. Not only did he learn the proofs in the books, he also tackled the new theories by trying to prove them on his own. He even came up on his own with a way to prove the Pythagorean theory.

12. Good idea, but

 

don't think that'll do.

He has my vote, but expect that the obvious patriots will make fun of
whatever they can - his hair, his New York accent, his long ties to "socialist" Vermont,
and... they'll likely find a way to insinuate that his being a Jew is not helpful (though they
made obvious exceptions for other patriots like Wolfowitz, Perle, et al.)

14. Or inform them that

Bernie doesn't have time for the hairdressers and hair replacement artists, face lits, surgery tucks, etc, because he's too worried about the country to worry about cosmetic things.

Many women don't have time to devote to the economy, income inequality, etc., because they spend a lot of time at the beauty shop, and look-out when they get a bad hair-do...

a war with just about anybody to support Israel, don't wan't socialism here in the US but don't have anything bad to say about the fact that Israel is socialist.
