Albert Einstein was a well-known German physicist of Jewish origin, who years later obtained American citizenship. In this video we will see very interesting details of one of the most acclaimed scientists of the last centuries:
Einstein never wore socks because for him they represented a real discomfort, for him it was not important the opinion of others about his physical aspect and his clothes, so he never followed the trends of the moment nor was he dazzled by the Parisian tendencies that were so abundant at that time, it seemed absurd to him that if they already wore shoes it was necessary to wear socks.
In 1952 he was proposed to be the prime minister of Israel, a proposal he rejected because he thought he was too old for such a responsibility, he was offered this position because he was a very respected and recognized Jew, and according to David Ben-Gurion the prime minister of Israel at that time: “There is not a more capable Jew on the face of the earth than he is”.
Einstein has the reputation of having been a scientist focused on theory but he made use of his knowledge in a practical way, something that almost nobody knows because Einstein together with Leo Szilard created the first nuclear reactor that served as a refrigerator, but which was never produced on a large scale and didn´t need electricity to refrigerate food.
Albert wasn´t always the most intelligent man, as he failed several times in language, literature, culture and art exams, but this was not an impediment to becoming an extraordinary scientist and this is further proof that traditional knowledge isn´t always very useful.
Einstein hated science fiction because it diverted the course of science and made people believe that some things could never happen and filled their heads with fantasy. He said:
I never think about the future, it just comes fast enough.
He was also a proponent of paranormal events because he said that if someone witnessed monsters, UFOs, ghosts, and the like, they should keep them as personal experiences and private so that they wouldn´t lose their magic and mystery.
