I’ve come across a lot of quotes attributed to Albert Einstein.  Many I’m sure are his, but some aren’t.  Einstein isn’t unique in this regard, this happens to other people, too.  Some are accidents, but others I believe are the result of people trying to spread a message and using someone famous to give their idea credibility.

With that in mind, I created the following non-serious Albert Einstein  image quote.  (By the way, he died years before the internet was created.)

Fake Einstein Quote

Alan Kay said that the best way to predict the future is to invent it.  With that in mind, the best way to stay ahead of trends, is to start them.  To explain my idea, a little history is needed.

 

People have been calling their loved ones “baby” for ages.  That’s a word with two syllables.  Of course, it is human nature to look for shortcuts, so many years ago “baby” became “babe”.  Same amount of letters, but now only one syllable.  That seemed to do, but a short time ago, even that was shortened by some to “bae”.  Still a syllable, but without the consonant sound at the end and one less letter to type into your phone.

 

Was it necessary?  It doesn’t matter.  If you don’t want to sound like a fuddy-duddy (you know, like the kind of person who says “fuddy-duddy”) then you have to adapt.  Therefore, to help everyone out, I’m recommending people start using “b” as an affectionate name for their loved ones.  It is pronounced like bee, without the “ee” sound.  (That’s right, it just the consonant b.)

 

You’re welcome.
