Einstein’s totally hardcore!
Here I am on the couch eating a slice of cold pizza, waiting for Yankees’ batting practice to start on the boob tube. I’m also perusing BaldPunk.com thinking how I gotta work on the design a little (a lot!!!). Add a nice header. Maybe something with me and my lady friend in full punk regalia or au naturel. I dunno.
So I see Einstein’s pic in one of the posts, and I say to the pizza and Chinese delivery guys who are at the table eating, “Einstein is totally hardcore.” Maybe they agree. The Chinese guy is eating noodles, and about the best way I can describe it is that he’s a noodle sucking machine. The pizza guy is also eating noodles and in between mouthfuls, he smiles. The bastard’s always smiling, and when he’s not smiling, he’s eating. I kid you not.
So, Einstein! You need to pick up a copy of his Ideas and Opinions. It’s one of those books that no home should be without. This way if you want to wrap your arms and maybe even your head around great writing, it’s there on the bookshelf.
Flip it open and you will be treated to exquisite prose that, in my opinion, is second to none. The book makes it clear that his artistic ability and genius were not limited to the field of science.
