Knowing his age and background, I once asked a professor of mine in college (who looked a bit like a "mad" Einstein) how he escaped being drafted. He replied, "I didn't. When I reported, they took one look at me and decided it would probably be in everyone's best interest to not let me anywhere near an M-16". I don't know how honest he was being but he did have a point. He was absent minded as well...once set his pants on fire during class with a pipe he was smoking, after putting it in his pocket with an open book of matches.
