Feynman and Hillis, both geniuses. I highly recommend their books. I’m a fan of smart people.

Feynman is the coolest egghead of all time.

This was the nicest story I’ve read in awhile. Thanks for the link.

Yes — the math and science were over my head, but what made Feynman neat shines through.

Anyone who enjoyed this piece but is unfamiliar with Feynman should check out the book “Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!”
