Did you know that Thomas Harvey, the man who performed Einstein’s autopsy, straight stole his brain?! And he just kept it for (nearly) the rest of his life?! And when he went to finally return it to Einstein’s granddaughter, he had it in a Tupperware container?! And when they got there, she didn’t want it?!
OK, I’m going to calm down. This story is just so weird, though, and I can’t believe I didn’t know about it. Definitely going on the reading list:Paterniti describes the trip in his book Driving Mr. Albert: A Trip Across America with Einstein’s Brain. The book includes some mind-blowing weirdness, including a stop in Lawrence, Kan., to visit Harvey’s former neighbor, the writer and heroin addict William S. Burroughs.
I love stories about stolen body parts. Brains are the best. And Einstein’s was, of course, the best brain. Endless win.

*Personally, I’d be interested in what happens to all this Facebook data when Facebook pulls a Friendster and naturally implodes in another five years or so. By 2016, there oughta be room for all that stuff on a single Chinese thumbdrive. —
