Happy Birthday Al!

Big day in the science community!

It's Pi day AND Albert Einstein's birthday!

Everyone knows Albert Einstein is famous for deriving E=MC2.

Some of my favorite quotes:

1. Anyone who has never made a mistake never tried something new
2. If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough
3.Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted
4. You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”
5. Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity
6. If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”
7. I am a deeply religious nonbeliever - This is a somewhat new kind of religion
8. The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax

Einstein always fascinated me. As a teenager, I didn't put up posters of bands in my room.  My ceiling was COVERED in posters of Albert Einstein. I used to lay in bed and just stare up at them. I found it amazing that someone could conceive of such amazing things.

Happy Birthday Albert!
