A friend and I were discussing Richard Dawkins this morning and it reminded me of this awesome physicist named Richard Feynman that I had found online a year or so ago. At the time, I watched several long youtube clips of him and remember thinking how incredibly cool he was and how his explanations of complex concepts were just unbelievable. This guy had a very interesting life including winning the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 and working on the Manhattan Project. It also is odd that he bears a slight resemblance to my grandfather on my dad’s side (at least in my mind he does…).

So do yourself a favor, spend a few minutes and listen to this chat about fire:


His talk on Why? questions will blow your mind.


Like a monkey trying to get the banana… I’m with you Richard
