Quote of the Day (Hart Pomerantz, on Einstein’s Math and Marriage)

“[Albert] Einstein married Mileva Maric, a brilliant physicist and the only woman in his university class. The couple had two sons, and Einstein wanted to name them Positive and Negative, so they would stick together. The principle of quantum superposition says that a particle can be in two places at the same time. When Einstein started cheating on Mileva, he used that theory as an alibi.”— Canadian lawyer and TV personality Hart Pomerantz, “Shouts and Murmurs: Einstein—The Untold Story,” The New Yorker, Jan. 6, 2020
