For the uninitiated, “Los Alamos From Below” talk given by Nobel Laurate Richard Feynman at Santa Barbara on February 6, 1975. Richard Feynman was a theoretical physicist, an artist, a story teller all rolled into one. This unusual combination make him a curious character, who could not be ignored!
I personally am a great fan of his, and admire him for the kind of radiant personality he had. His hilarious experiments, his awkward social moments, his experiments on human phenomenon like dreams never cease to amaze anyone.
“Los Alamos From Below” is the story of how he was involved in the Manhattan Project, which gave the world the first nuclear bomb. Far from being a technical talk, this is actually quite funny, and very interesting for the unique narration style.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )

Old, but fun nevertheless.
Eighteen bottles of whiskey
I had eighteen bottles of whiskey in the cellar, and my wife insisted I empty the contents of each bottle down the sink, or else. After careful consideration, I reluctantly agreed and finally proceeded with the unpleasant task.
I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink with the exception of one glass, which I drank.
Then, I withdrew the cork from the second bottle and did likewise with it, with the exception of one glass, which I drank.
I then withdrew the cork from the third bottle and poured the whiskey down the sink, which I drank.
I pulled the cork from the fourth bottle down the sink and poured the bottle down the glass, which I drank.
I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank one sink out of it, and threw the rest down the glass.
I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork down the bottle. Then, I corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour.
When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the glasses, corks, bottles, and sinks with the other, which were twenty-nine, and as the houses came by I counted them again, and finally I had all the houses in one bottle, which I drank.
I’m not under the affluence of incohol as some tinkle peep I am. I’m not half as thunk as you might drink. I fool so feelish I don’t know who is me, and the drunker I stand here, the longer I getRead Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
