not many people know that Einstein invented an electric horn for a bicycle and was awarded the No bell prize for it.

I've read and heard several references of his interest in Marilyn Monroe. I think she would have been more than willing to converse with him and it may have led to other things.

The caption for photo #6 says, "Mr. Einstein getting a self portrait.." If it were a self-portrait, wouldn't he be painting it? LOL

When AE was at Princeton he was visited several times a week by a little girl about 10 years old. When they ask him what one of the worlds greatest thinkers might have to discuss with this young lady, he replied "I do her arithmetic homework, and she brings me oatmeal cookies". He was perhaps more just the "old man next door" than we would ever guess.

The portrait of him is incorrectly called a "self-portrait." A "self-portrait" is painted by the painter of him or her self. This was just a portrait.

I read that Albert Einstein was so focused on math and science that he had several sets of the same clothes so he wouldn't have to choose. He was also known to lose his way home on occasion. My favorite quote of his is: "Wisdom is knowing what you don't know." The stories of him crossing paths with Marilyn Monroe make me smile because the movie star had a 156 IQ and was gorgeous and I can't imagine AE being more excited and passionate about her for those reasons. Brains and beauty.
