[00:07.34] Two Geniuses Many people regard Albert Einstein
[00:13.51](1879-1955)as one of the 20th century's greatest geniuses.
[00:21.55]His attempt to explain the working of the universe helped create suchthings as nuclear energy
[00:28.71]space travel and television.
[00:32.65]The modest Einstein used to say that the only gift he had was curiosity1
[00:39.13]but stories about him show that he also had a sense of humour.
[00:44.70]One tells that, as a young man with a growing reputation
[00:50.05]he received many invitations to go to universities to explain his theories.
[00:56.53]On these trips his driver was always the same a man called Hans.
[01:03.69]Hans often said to him, 'It's a pleasure to drive a genius like you, Dr Einstein
[01:10.35]'One evening, on their way to a remote university,
[01:15.00]Einstein said'I wish I didn't have to give my lecture tonight, Hans.
[01:20.77]I'm so tired.But I can't let my audience down, can I?
[01:26.13]You don't need to said Hans.
[01:29.97]'We'll change places and I'll give the lecture for you.
[01:34.54]I've listened to it dozens of times.I don't understand it but I know it by heart
[01:40.99]And no one knows you at the university do they? No one will find out.
[01:46.66]'Einstein eventually agreed with Hans,
[01:50.71]but said to him'Don't try to answer any questions whatever you do.
[01:56.58]They changed places and at the university Hans was greeted and led to the platform
[02:02.83]of a great hall crowded with professors and students.
[02:07.90]Einstein took a seat in the audience listened to Hans give his lecture perfectly2
[02:14.35]and joined in the applause3 at the end.
[02:18.32]However, before Hans could get off the platform
[02:23.18]a professor shouted from the audience'I'd like to ask you a question.
[02:29.34]It's very difficult but please answer it.
[02:33.50]He then asked a question so difficult that Hans
[02:38.46]had no idea what he was talking about.
[02:42.43]Einstein thought Oh dear, now we're in trouble.
[02:46.87]But Hans just laughed and said, That's not a difficult question sir.
[02:52.33]In fact, it's so easy even my driver knows how to answer it.
[02:57.19]Hans, stand up and ...Einstein stood up and answered the question perfectly
[03:05.13]They left the university, with Einstein driving.
[03:09.81]A little later, Hans offered to take over from him.
[03:14.77]'No, my friend.'laughed Einstein.
