    Willem Einthoven

    Jew Score:



    May 21, 1860 – September 29, 1927

    The line goes across the screen... BEEP! It spikes, then falls. Everyone lets out a sigh. Still alive! BEEP!

    Picture someone on a hospital bed. What's next to it? BEEP! It's the EKG monitor, measuring heart activity. BEEP!

    There were number of attempts to create a heart monitor in the late 19th century. BEEP! It wasn't until 1901 that Dutch doctor Willem Einthoven proved to be successful. BEEP!

    In 1924, he won the Nobel in Medicine for it. BEEP! The system has been modified over the years, but much of Einthoven's principles are still used today. BEEP!

    Another great Jewish invention? BEEP! Well, Einthoven was just a quarter, and was definitely not raised Jewish.

    In fact... wait a minute, wasn't there supposed to be a beep there? What we're saying is that Einthoven had a Jewish grandfather, wait, seriously, where is the sound? The profile is on its last legs as is... Where are you, beep? beeeeeeeeee...

    Verdict: Barely a Jew.
