I wouldn't either, but to each their own I guess.

Lol, I agree. But hey, there has been worse purchases I'm sure.

How about when Napoleon's penis was purchased at auction for $3,000.00?

Einstein devoted his life to science but suggested in the notes that achieving a long-dreamt-of goal did not necessarily guarantee happiness.

When the courier came to his room to make a delivery, the physicist did not have any money to reward him.

He had at the time just heard that he had won the Nobel Prize for physics and was in Japan on a lecture tour.


He didn't strike me as the "Cliches" type.

I agree that is not very profound

My job is to convince him to hand me that $$$ legitimately.

Agreed. That's why the Internet has pretty much killed the small collectibles market. If somebody really wants an old Einstein shoelace and is willing to pay millions for it, they can find it on the Internet and buy it. They win. End of the line. Anybody who isn't going to spend the millions for it but still might want it is SOL.


Einstein's shoelaces are only worth like 38,000$, cmon man, lol, let's be reasonable here.

The market's all messed up man.

Well he wasn't very good at math either.
He was full of surprises.

Einstein was also a socialist. Even such a great mind could not predict the abject failure of the views he would come to espouse.

I didn't know that.

About what time frame did he espouse socialistic political views?
Hopefully it was before the Russian Revolution and after that complete disaster he decided to go quiet about it...

Because if he still favored that ideology after the Revolution and it's mega-mass murders of millions of people, I'd have to say that's a big big flaw in his 'intellectualism'.

Yes, He may have been somewhat naive in his judgement sometimes. Use of Atomic Bomb. He was aware of that.

"When President Chaim Weizmann died in 1952, Einstein was asked to be Israel's second president, but he declined, stating that he had "neither the natural ability nor the experience to deal with human beings."

Maybe if he had been more of a misanthrope, like you and I ?

Yeah, just because somebody is good at something and becomes famous doesn't mean they should be taken as authorities on subjects they know no more about than we do. Like entertainers. This guy was no great social thinker.

Now, the manuscript where he first wrote "E-mc²" might be worth a buck or two.
