    Default Black Cat, Ladder, or Umbrella 3/13/21

    On your ride, find one of these three items/words that are associated with good/bad luck:
    1. Black cat - may have started during medieval times when animals with dark feathers or fur signaled death
    2. Ladder - walking under a ladder is considered bad luck because you are breaking up the holy Trinity (God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit)
    3. Umbrella - may have started in ancient Egypt because opening an umbrella where there is no sun would anger the sun god Ra because it was a defiance of natural order


    Happy hunting!

    I resisted the temptation just to go get breakfast at Einstein Bagels, and went for something that was actually named after Albert Einstein. Einstein, as we all know, came up with the equation E=MC2, which has something to do with time travel (except that it doesn't).

    I deleted. Hope the picture meets the requirements. Finding this on a phone is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Too bad the email links don’t actually go to the posts.

    3/14 - Scientist

    I went with the obvious choice and the giant Albert Einstein statue outside the National Academy of Science.

    Einstein's Theory of Relativity is the backbone for one of my favorite "lesser known" Queen tracks from A Night at the Opera - '39 (and what sort of time travel it allows).

    United Therapeutics FTW on Celebrate Science Day (headquartered in downtown Silver Spring).
    Great list of names on their Biowalk of Fame, but I’ll highlight Dr. Charles Drew; Arlington, VA, native, who discovered how to separate plasma from red blood cells, and from whom I now have 2 degrees of separation thanks to my FS teammate [mention]Catedrew [/mention]who is his great-niece! Thanks to Dr. Drew for his life work and highest regards to his whole family

    3/14/21 - Since I was out in Leesburg scouting for a public art ride, I looked for street names that might line up with scientists.

    Here is Raymond "Ray" Davis Jr. (Davis Dr may or may not be named for him).

    DC native born and U of MD grad, Dr. Davis (Yale PhD in physical chemistry) was an American chemist and physicist. He is best known as the leader of the Homestake experiment in the 1960s-1980s, which was the first experiment to detect neutrinos emitted from the Sun; for this he shared the 2002 Nobel Prize in Physics.

    For more about him, go here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Davis_Jr.
