8. 'Live and Let Die'

When Nobel Prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein passed away on April 18,
1955, he left behind specific instructions when it came to the disposal of
his body, according to one National Geographic investigation. Einstein didn’t
want his corpse to be worshiped or his brain to be studied, so he instructed
those who were responsible for his remains to “cremate them, and scatter the
ashes secretly in order to discourage idolaters.”
However, Thomas Harvey, the pathologist on call when Einstein died at New
Jersey’s Princeton Hospital, didn’t quite follow those instructions.
Instead, he stole Einstein’s brain. From there, things got even weirder.
When Einstein’s family found out, his son apparently didn’t object to the
theft and Harvey was able to keep the brain in two jars in his basement
before moving it to “a cider box stashed under a beer cooler.”

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
