According to a book review of Elizabeth MacLeod’s Albert Einstein: A Life of Genius in YES Mag; Canada’s Science Magazine for Kids, Einstein “approved the patent for the mold used to make the Toblerone chocolate bar.” (The review is by Reuben Wasser, age 9.) I ask you: did you know that? But, but…: Just two words re. the Toblerone: Billy Connolly. Listen to his review of the triangle-shaped bar by clicking on “Switzerland” a bit down the page. (I’d link to it directly, but those goons in the copyright / anti-file-sharing sector worry me.)

  3. It’s similar to the question that got Einstein started on his Theory of Relativity. How long is a moving train? It’s a long story….
