Thoughtful post from a homeschooler, Geek Dad. Check out the responses. The heated exchanges reveal a lot.
One lucky post — at today’s traffic rates, Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub will rocket through its 550,000th view this afternoon.
If it’s not repeatable, it’s a miracle, right?
[Update: 550,000th hit at about 2:20 p.m. CDT.]
I believe this is an excerpt from a NOVA tribute to Feynman, which has never been available commercially so far as I have found. Anybody know how to get a copy of the video?
Among other things, the piece included comments from some of Feynman’s closest friends, and it detailed their fascination with a tiny republic then inside of the Soviet Union, Tannu Tuva, which Feynman had determined to be the most obscure and difficult nation on Earth to travel to — and so, of course, he wanted to go. The place is known today as Tuva.
No denying the man his orange juice.
