It turns out that the father of a genius was not so simple. Vasily Land Lomonosov led fishing team and was not only respected, but also a very wealthy man. Lomonosov Sr. received quite good for its time, the parish education and collected books.

The first wife of Basil of Land – Michael's mother, whose name was Helen, was also a competent woman, because her father served as the Church clerk. She early childhood instilled in his son a love of books and, of course, taught him to read and write, and arithmetic.

We know from home Lomonosov left because thrust for knowledge, but it's not. Michael's mother died when he was 9 years old, and his father soon remarried.

Lomonosov girl is not attracted to, and go to another family he did not want. Therefore, under pressure from all sides, the young man decided to run away from home and far away. The escape took place the day before the wedding and he was thoroughly prepared. Michael learned, which carts go in the right direction and moving towards the goal with one, then another.

Of course, on foot he had to go, but quite a bit, mainly because I managed to ride with the fish. About this version says that the path of the University in the mother see only took three weeks. On foot, and in the winter, the guy would have to go much longer.

All are Mikhail Lomonosov plump good-natured goof, but it is also not true. Giant science was very well physically developed, and while still hot-tempered. Contemporaries described many cases when Lomonosov let his fists in his student years, and later became a luminary of the world of science.

One of the stories talks about what to Lomonosov, was strolling along one of the streets of Vasilievsky island in St. Petersburg, landed three drunken sailors. Revelers needed money to continue the feast, and they decided that the well-dressed man will solve their financial problems.

But Mikhail Vasilyevich with St. Petersburg Gopnik was a short conversation or two got hard from his fists, and the third scientist not only turned the nose, but was able to hold. When Lomonosov asked beaten sailor, for what purpose, he and his friends attacked a passerby, he replied that the purpose of profit. This recognition has led scientist's fury, and he robbed the robber to the skin.

Young Mikhail Vasilyevich did not avoid the cheerful companies and often exhausting, staged a brawl. Got it from the irascible genius and colleagues in the scientific workshop, and not always the spores were associated with formulas and algorithms. In 1747, Mikhail started a drunken brawl right in the walls of the Academy of Sciences, so much so broke that scholars fled, and for a long time was afraid to come.

The bullying never came down, and the scientist put under arrest for six months. Fortunately for Mikhail Vasilyevich and to science, to serve his entire term was not necessary and a month later, the repentant rowdy returned to the Academy of Sciences. Lomonosov when angered, he was short-tempered and no doubt used all his rich vocabulary. Preserved records of his contemporaries who were present when scientists debate with the participation of the beacon.

What are the signs showed academics Lomonosov, guess today is not easy, but, most likely, the Fig is not limited. It should be noted that Mikhail had every reason sharply to respond to the colleagues. He believed that Russian scientists do not fulfill their salaries and do nothing, just imitating violent activities.
