Albert Einstein has become so synonymous with genius that his surname has in fact become synonymic for brainiac. Einstein was nearly as passionate about smoking his pipe as he was about science. During one lecture where he ran out of Pipe Tobacco he proceeded to borrow cigarettes from a student and crumbled the innards into his pipe. Sadly he discovered that cigarette tobacco lacked the fullness, aroma and taste of Pipe Tobacco. Einstein’s meticulous nature was drawn to the entire ritual of smoking from selection to preparation to inhaling.
