Einstein the Wise?

Post  Khephra on Fri Aug 28, 2009 5:59 pm



Albert Einstein was once asked by a student, "Dr Einstein, how many feet are there in a mile?" To the utter astonishment of the student, Einstein replied, "I donít know."

The student was sure the great professor was joking. Surely Einstein would know a simple fact that every schoolchild is required to memorise. But Einstein wasnít joking. When the student pressed for an explanation of this gap in Einsteinís knowledge, he declared, "I make it a rule not to clutter my mind with simple information that I can find in a book in five minutes."
