Thanks to everyone who played the Albert Einstein word puzzle.
I tried to include a few "trivial" tidbits about A.E.'s extraordinary life and idiosyncrasies.
Although he deserved ten phrases about only his scientific achievements, that would have been too "cerebral", and besides, I could not have been able to do justice in only seventy five letters/ phrase. But if there's demand?

Okay, I noticed a lot of great scores- so you guys are really smart. But you joined Sploofus- so that's to be expected.

Thanks again!

Here is the complete list of ten clues/ phrases.

ALVANDY Honors Albert Einstein

in nineteen ninety nine time magazine named him person of the century ("Worldwide Recognition")
won nobel prize in physics for discovering law of photoelectric effect ("1921")
four revolutionary discoveries including the special theory of relativity ("A wonderful year - 1905")
early speech problems caused his parents concern he had mental retardation ("Not a child prodigy")
born march fourteenth eighteen seventy nine in this german town ("Ulm")
well documented that he constantly lost things particularly umbrellas ("Wished it wouldn't rain")
no reason to memorize his number since he never planned to call himself ("A.E. - Don't phone home!")
science without religion is lame religion without science is blind ("A metaphysical quote")
he held citizenships in germany switzerland and the united states ("Man without one country")
in special relativity the relationship is expressed as e equals m c squared ("His famous formula")
