Lunchtime Viewing – Richard Feynman: Fun to Imagine

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

I’m sure many readers have already run across this, but for those who haven’t, we thought it worth sharing. Being geeks during lunch we often find geeky stuff to watch. I personally checkout what the latest TED talks are, catch up on Jon Stewart, or cruise Reddit. Today I stumbled across the Richard Feynman: Fun to Imagine documentary on Youtube. Feynman is famous for his ability to explain complex physics to the everyday person as well as infuse the subjects with fun and enthusiasm. I learned something today that I had always wondered; I had no idea that the bulk of plants came from pulling the atoms literally out of the air. I always wondered how it was that more of the dirt didn’t disappear every year when the leaves fell and were taken away. So now I don’t know whether to feel dumb or smarter 😛

Enjoy on your lunch break!
