Being a Feynman WP groupie myself, his offhand mention in lonelygirl15’s NYT article piqued my interest and today I found that particular clip when she talks about him. Bree WP counts Surely You’re Joking Mr. Feynman AM as one of her favorite books (I do too) and introduces the physicist with her trademark, inane teentalk we’ve all come to love and hate: “one of the smartest physicist ever, Richard Feynman… he’s really smart, like… Einstein-smart, like Newton-smart, like professor calculus smart.” But any comparison, of course, is in this case an understatement: Feynman was smart as in “as in Feynman-smart.”
