Einstein for a Day
Albert Einstein, one of the world’s brilliant and respected scientists, is best known for formulating the theory of relativity. But it is not widely known that he had a fine sense of humor.
There is an amusing story about Einstein’s visiting universities in a car driven by a chauffeur, giving lectures on relativity. One day the chauffeur said: “Mr. Einstein, I have heard you give this lecture about 30 times. I know it by heart, and I am sure I could give it myself.”
“Well I’ll give you a chance,” said Einstein. “They won’t recognize me at school. When we get there, I’ll put on your cap and you introduce yourself as me and give a lecture.”
The chauffeur gave Einstein’s lecture without making a single mistake. On finishing, he started to leave, but one of the professors stopped him to ask a difficult question. The chauffeur thought fast. “That problem is so trivial,” he said, “to show how simple it is, I am going to ask my chauffeur to come up here and answer your question.”
