This guy is a physics professor. His real name is Don Speed. Weird, huh.

A lot of his students think Don looks Einsteinish. He used to play up the hair thing (he's had white hair since he was 38.) I had a girlfriend who wanted him just because he looked like Einstein! Whatever. :Wink:

Don, by the way, is an avid photographer. He's the only guy I know, irl, who has the F6 camera like you do Dino. He's also big into astro-photography. He has several telescopes, and runs the school's 14 inch.

Telescope.

Could'nt resist general drift of this thread.This is a local victorian pub named after Prince Albert,Queen Victoria's husband.The publican ,being a humorous type,decided to put Einsein's hungover face on the sign.It's a very popular pub,but patronized by lesser mortals than Einstein(before 10PM that is,:biggrin:)
