It's all Relative

This year marks the 100th anniversary of what is called Einstein's Miracle year of 1905. This article sums up those accomplishments well, and explains how they set the groundwork for his most famous observation, The Theory of Relativity, in 1919. To the layman, he shared it this way:
Einstein described relativity this way: "Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity."
Now even I can understand that!
