Stinky?

I bet it smells “smart”, really smart!

“one leather jacket solved the coat problem for years.”’

That guy, always solving the universe’s most complex problems.


#4

For that kind of money, I would expect that they sold the jacket with a pair of armpit fans. Problem solved!


#5

oh come on… like you’re not even the TINIEST bit curious what einstein’s pipe smoke smelled like.


#6

Completely apocryphal but I heard a story that he never bothered to memorize his phone number because it was in the phone book.


#7

Another problem solved!

It actually reminds me of Jeff Goldblum in “The Fly”, how he had a closet filled with the exact same suit, so he never had to waste time thinking about what to wear.


#8

If I was filthy rich and this thing actually fit, yeah, I could see going for it, and then actually wearing it around. Maybe Elon Musk bought it?


#9

$144,000? I just bought one through Amazon for half that price!


#10

Dang it, I knew I was missing some Prime Day bargains.


#11

#12

That was Steve Jobs in “real life.”


#13

Can anyone on here… from memory not googling, explain relativity?


#14

from memory, not googled!!eleven!


#15

Heh. “Musk, Elan”


#16

Nice. :slight_smile:


#17

No, but I do own a shabby leather jacket.


#18

Yup. We know because they showed it on the screen.

Ummm …
