Einstein dies and goes to heaven ony to be informed that his room isn't ready.
St. Peter tells him "I hope you won't mind waiting in a dormitory, even though you'll have to share the room with others."
Einstein assures him there's no problem and St. Peter leads him in, saying "Here is your first room-mate. He has an IQ of 180" "That's wonderful" says Einstein "We can discuss particle physics."
St Peter then says: "And here's your second room-mate, his IQ is 150!" "Great," replies Einstein "We can talk about cosmology."
Just then another man reaches out to grab Einstein's hand and shakes it. "I'm your final room-mate," he explains, "and I'm sorry but my IQ is only 80." Einstein smiles back and replies: "So, where do you think the markets are headed?"
