  •  Hermann Einstein asked the principal of young (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Albert's school what studies the principal would suggest Albert follow.

    The principal replied that it didn't matter because Albert would fail at everything he tried.

    While young Albert was concocting a plan to escape his schooling, he was saved the trouble by being thrown out.

    In his autobiographical Epitaph, Einstein wrote that while he regretted having cheated to get later degrees he gladly bore that burden considering the free time it allowed him.

    Today it is rather common knowledge.

    Best, Terry
