As Einstein supposedly said:
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe"

"As Einstein supposedly said .."

Supposedly ... but probably not. It doesn't even sound like Einstein.

Alice Calaprice edited the Ultimate Quotable Einstein. Page 478 finds the quote in the "Probably Not by Einstein" category.

Thomas Jefferson has far more fake quotes attributed to him than Einstein does. But AE has quite a few.

"Never underestimate the power of human stupidity."

Robert A. Heinlein

"Against stupidity the gods Themselves contend in vain"

Friedrich Schiller

Do I detect a common theme?
