Nerd sniping by xkcd

Albert Einstein spent several years in Pasadena, California, working at CalTech. Einstein wasn’t known for being terribly focused on his surroundings, and apparently many of the locals were terrified that they would go down in history as the person that mowed down Einstein as he stepped out into the road without looking. (Apparently he left a check of some size in a library book – he’d been using it as a bookmark instead of depositing it.)
