爱因斯坦狂爱吃鸡蛋

Albert einstein is perhaps the world's greatest scientist. The Nobel Prize winner, who solved the riddle of the photoelectric effect and proposed the general theory of relativity, died on April 18, 1955, aged 76 after laying the foundation of modern physics and changing mankind's views on space, time, mass, and energy. But did you know he was obsessed by fried eggs? That's one of 10 quirky things about the man behind the famous equation e = mc 2 that we learn from the book einstein at Home, which will be published in english in May 2016 for the first time. The book contains five interviews conducted by scientist Friedrich Herneck with Herta Waldow, nee Schiefelbein, who was the live-in housekeeper of einstein in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district of Berlin for six years.

阿尔伯特•爱因斯坦可能是世界上最伟大的科学家。他是诺贝尔奖得主,破解了光电效应的谜题,提出了广义相对论,奠定了现代物理学的基础,改变了人类对空间、时间、质量和能量的认识。他于1955年4月18日逝世,享年76岁。但是,你知道他对煎蛋非常痴迷吗?我们也是从《爱因斯坦的家庭生活》这本书知道的。这个提出著名等式e = mc 2的科学家有10个癖好,都收录在这本书中。此书的英文版将于2016年5月第一次出版。书中还收录了科学家弗里德里希•赫尔内克对赫塔•沃尔多(娘家姓席费尔拜因)女士的五次采访,沃尔多女士曾经在爱因斯坦位于柏林夏洛滕堡-威尔默斯多夫区的家中当了六年的住家管家。

 

The mad hair came on the cheap

凌乱的头发是省钱省出来的

 

einstein's second wife was his cousin elsa Loewenthal. elsa could not persuade einstein to pay for a barber so she would cut his hair herself. Waldow recalled: "When his hair was too long, when it was beyond the pale, elsa would cut off his hair with scissors and he was willing to put up with it. As well as his disheveled hair, elsa also trimmed the great scientist's moustache.

爱因斯坦的第二任妻子是他的堂姐艾尔莎•洛文塔尔。艾尔莎没法劝服爱因斯坦,让他花钱找理发师理发,只能自己给他剪。沃尔多回忆说:“当他的头发长得太长,长得让人无法忍受时,艾尔莎就会拿剪子给他剪头发,他也愿意让她这么剪。除了修剪凌乱的头发,艾尔莎还会给这个大科学家刮胡子。

 

He made his shoes last

他的鞋寿命很长

 

Penny-pinching seems to have been a thing in the einstein household - a seven-room apartment. Waldow, who was the housekeeper from 1927-1933, said that he was always short of cash and his wife was very penny pinching. He wore shoes with holes in them, even if they were no longer watertight. "He would wear them until it was no longer possible." She said his favourite footwear was sandals. No wonder he kept a sign up in his office in later life in Princeton that said: "Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts."

爱因斯坦住的公寓有七间屋子,节俭似乎是他家的主题。沃尔多在1927-1933年间在这里当管家,她说爱因斯坦手头总是很紧,他的妻子也非常节俭。他的鞋有破洞了,甚至都不防水了,他还在穿。“他要把它们穿到实在穿不了了为止。”她说他最喜欢穿的鞋就是凉鞋。怪不得他晚年在普林斯顿大学的办公室里挂着一句话:“不是所有有价值的都可以被计算,不是所有能计算的都有价值。”

 

He really was an egghead (especially fried eggs )

他真是鸡蛋(特别是炒鸡蛋)爱好者

 

Waldow had to deliver fried eggs and scrambled eggs almost every day for his breakfast. There were eggs for breakfast, usually fried. There was also a lot of honey, which we bought by the pail, brought by a beekeeper. "Herr Professor always ate fried eggs, at least two." They bought their fresh eggs from an elderly Jewish man. "Dear me, he was so grubby!" Waldow said. einstein also enjoyed mushrooms with his eggs. "He would probably have eaten mushrooms three times a day, that's how fond he was of them."

沃尔多几乎每天都给他送煎蛋和炒蛋当早餐。早餐的鸡蛋通常是煎的,里面还加了很多蜂蜜。蜂蜜是从一个养蜂人那里一桶一桶买来的。“教授先生总是吃煎蛋,一次至少吃两个。”他们的鲜鸡蛋是从一个老犹太人那里买的。“天呐,那个卖蜂蜜的可邋遢了!”沃尔多说,爱因斯坦还喜欢在鸡蛋里加蘑菇。“他几乎一天吃三顿蘑菇,他就是这么喜欢。”
