Nerd Post

So I have this thing for Einstein, which is rather strange considering I despise math, and tend to not like science...but I like Einstein. 
I even follow him on Twitter. Yes, it's possible, and yes, it's ironic.
We all know him as the crazy genius, but there's really so much more to him. He regretted the atomic bomb. The only reason he signed the letter was out of fear that Germany could possess the same weapons. He stood for peace and said that killing within a war was no different than murder.
He felt that conformity was tragedy.
And he was a rather funny guy.
The tongue picture? That came out after he had spent a day being told by paparazzi to "smile for the camera." As he was told this again while getting in the car, he stuck out his tongue. later, he cropped it down in size and used it for his Christmas cards. 

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

-Albert Einstein (1929)
