Einstein Was A Dog!

Beyond science, Einstein's letters reveal a life of turbulence - The Boston Globe: "Einstein achieved world fame in 1905 after publishing his special theory of relativity while he was living in Bern, Switzerland. He settled in Berlin in 1914 but traveled extensively, lecturing and working in many places including three stints as a scholar in residence at Oxford University. Threatened by the Nazis, who put a bounty on his head, he left Berlin for good in 1933 and settled in Princeton, N.J., from where he continued to correspond with his sons and former wife in Switzerland.

He became involved with Elsa, a cousin, in 1912 when he was still married to his first wife Mileva, a fellow scientist with whom he had two boys, Hans Albert and Eduard. Before he and Mileva married, they had a daughter, Lieserl, who was given up for adoption. (That's charming!)

In 1919, Einstein divorced Mileva and married Elsa, but within four years he was in love with Bette Neumann, his secretary who was also the young niece of one of his friends. Many more liaisons followed.

The letters reveal that a beautiful Berlin socialite named Ethel Michanowski followed him to Oxford, only to discover that he was involved with a third woman.

According to excerpts of letters made available to reporters, Einstein discussed his extra-marital affairs openly with his family."

I'm just stunned at this revelation. Never in my wildest imaginations would I picture Al as a stud! He's certainly no Brad Pitt! Maybe he had...ahem....some hidden attributes? Maybe that's the deal behind the whole tongue thing! I can tell you one thing...I'll never be able to look at him the same way ever again!

I used to think of him as the 'father' of his special theory of relativity and that his observations laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. NOW I'll remember him as the 'father' of promiscuity who laid the foundations for the theory of sexual addiction. Woof, woof.
