And whilst he had a firm grasp on the first unifying theory of relatively, he was relatively dire when it came to banter.
You see, we now know that Albert Einstein was probably on the Autistic spectrum. But hey, with the time he saved avoiding bro hugs, high fives and chilling with the lads, Einstein developed the most famous scientific equation you know, well… the only scientific equation you know.
So this Autism Awareness Month, remember, before we knew what Autism was, they were shaping history. Let’s not stop them now.
