Uncle Albert

Think of the great time Albert Einstein had in 1905, 100 years ago (he turned 26 in March of that year):

March-- submits groundbreaking paper on the photoelectric effect
April-- submits his PhD thesis on determining the size of molecules
May-- submits groundbreaking paper on Brownian motion
June-- submits groundbreaking paper on special relativity
August--submits groundbreaking paper on the size of molecules
September-- submits groundbreaking paper on the equivalence of mass and energy (i.e. E = mc^2)
October-November-- earns money tutoring a student on electricity
December-- submits paper extending theories on Brownian motion

The world is crying out for a screenwriter to tell us what Albert was doing in January, February and July.
