Would you believe that I saw Albert Einstein & Rob Reiner in a health food store, about 20 years ago?

Asked by Brian1946 (25615points) 1 week ago

I saw them together at a place called Healthy Discounts, sometime in the late 90’s.

If I’m not mistaken, they were on their way to the cash register.

If you think I was having a Bob Zimmerman-style hallucination or that I’m full of it, I have a surprise for you! ;-)

Since Einstein died in 1955, I find it highly unlikely you saw him 20 years ago.

I didn’t say it was Mr. E Equals Emcee Squared.

I’ll reveal my amazing surprise after I get more replies or 48 hours, whichever comes first. ;-p

Was it around Halloween?

You’re full of hippy-drug-induced BULLSHIT, but you gotta love the dude who set the stage for nukes! ;-D

It might have been Holloweenie, but no masks were involved.

Yes, I would believe you as you clearly saw Albert Brooks and Rob Reiner together.

You got it!

Did you already know that Brooks’ birth name is Albert Einstein?

When I Googled Albert Einstein, all I got on the first page were links about the dude who died when we left Canada.

I would believe, you think you saw them.
Did you actually see them? No, you did not.

@Brian1946 “Did you already know that Brooks’ birth name is Albert Einstein?”

Yep. Known that for years.

It would be hard to think of anyone more cognizant of the irony in his name than Brooks. I love the roles he plays and could watch Broadcast News, Defending Your Life or The Scout all day long. No one can top Brooks when it comes to portraying the guy with talent destined to receive nothing but the back of life’s hand. His characters always are aware of this destiny, and the ensuing simmering frustration and bitterness are too funny to describe. If you haven’t seen Defending Your Life, dial it up. I laugh myself silly just thinking about Brooks and that film’s premise.

Sure, why not. My mom’s cousin worked with or studied under Einstein, I don’t remember exactly. I think it was a second cousin, she didn’t know him well.

This was not Albert Enstien, the mathematician, who died in 1955

JLeslie's avatar

I see that now.

And I can’t believe you didn’t ask for an autograph!

I always thought that E=MC^2 is totally amazing. Can y’all explain how you can possibly square thev speed of light?

Pinguidchance's avatar

The principle in classical mechanics that E ∝ mv2 was first developed by Gottfried Leibniz and Johann Bernoulli, who described kinetic energy as the living force, vis viva. Willem ‘s Gravesande of the Netherlands provided experimental evidence of this relationship. By dropping weights from different heights into a block of clay, Willem ‘s Gravesande determined that their penetration depth was proportional to the square of their impact speed.

I would belive it better if they didn’t come out of a health food store.
Those two were not the healthiest pair of people.

Update: I just read the whole thread.
