Swiss Patent Office

As a young man Albert Einstein worked several years in the Swiss Patent Office, where his main duty was to examine patent applications for various mechanical devices.  Still struggling with his dissertations and finding a permanent teaching position, he was able to spend his work days deep in thought, pondering the profound questions from which he would revolutionize physics, science, philosophy, and the world. 

What a lucky man!

I had my Swiss Patent Office too as a young man and wasted my nights on the electric guitar and beer.

O for a second chance!

Second Swiss Patent Office, where are you?!
