    Feynman liked his bongos more than his wine. I wonder what he said about bongos.

    @Zen Pencils
    Gavin-sama, having been raised as the son of two scientists, I’d have known about Feynman’s little quirks, but this one came as a real surprise. Kudos to you for finding a quote that captures Feynman’s field and personality so perfectly.

    Lesson:
    Try not to over think things.
    Just enjoy what they are.

    But isn’t over thinking things part of the enjoyment?

    This is Richard Feynman we’re talking about. There is no such thing as “over thinking” when he’s involved. The question is whether anyone in the room can keep up with him.

    Actually although we are all familiar with the phrase In Vino Veritas (one is more likely to reveal truths when “in the cups”).


    is more of an interesting interpretation of it (either as unfermented fruit or a lack of ambiguity). I’m surprised not to see more comments already today. I like this one.

    The Feynman story I like is when he discovered a hole in the perimeter fence at Alamogorda. He signed out, crawled in, signed out, etc. until they finally noticed he never signed in. Security was restored promptly thereafter.

    Dr. Feynman a genius with an IQ of 127. Says something about IQ tests doesn’t it? He had a flexible and inquiring mind that didn’t let what was accepted as a limiter on his questioning. Something to remember.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    You’ve got to question who was administering the test, or whether Richard was taking it seriously.
