Funny / Richard Feynman

  • Many of the stories in his memoirs, but the time he asked a librarian for "a map of the cat" stands out.
  • Or the time he hung up on the Nobel committee because they had called him in the middle of the night.
    Caller: I thought you'd like to know you've won the Nobel prize.
    Feynman: Yeah, but I'm sleeping! (hangs up)
    Gweneth: Who was it?
    Gweneth: Oh Richard, who was it?
