Define Insanity

A brilliant man in Denver tests Einstein's definition of insanity.

The Aspen Daily News reported a store clerk said he saw the man load a case of beer into his backpack and walk out of the store Wednesday night.

Police found a man matching the clerk's description at a nearby bus stop and found the backpack stuffed into a newspaper box.

The man was arrested for petty theft and released, police said.

The next night, a different 7-Eleven clerk called police reporting that a man had just walked out of the store with two 12-packs.

A Pitkin County sheriff's deputy found the same alleged beer thief waiting at a bus stop.

He arrested the man for theft, the newspaper reported, and released him again.

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein
