(You'd act that way too if you discovered the theory of relativity!)

In case you almost forgot, today (March 14) is Albert Einstein's birthday. A hundred and thirty years ago today . . . . .

(Albert Einstein speaking at the opening of the New York Museum of Science and Technology - April 1936)

"Civilized man hasw a feeling of superiority to our primitive man. He considers himself, so to speak, as a higher being.

Does he not live in an ingeniously constructed house, instead of a clay hut?

Does he not travel by railroad, by automobile and by steamship? Also, he reads newspapers, has a rather complicated language and uses the telephone and radio. In short, he is proud of employing his kind of tools."

Can you help us out?
