Documents From Albert Einstein's Travels Through (Part) Time

Even geniuses have to put in some time punching the clock. Look no further than Albert Einstein himself, master of not only space-time but also—during a brief stint as a 9-to5er—of time cards.

Back in the 40s, Einstein put in some hours working part-time for the US Navy, developing "underwater weapons," and Retronaut dug up the proof from the National Archives. Apparently the gig didn't keep his attention though; he only spent a year there.


But the real takeaway is thank god we don't have to use timecards anymore, right? It looks like it would take a genius to figure out what's going on on those things. [National Archives via Retronaut]
