Richard Feynman and the demolition of snowflakes

Ever since I read his intro lectures to physics (whilst struggling through it in college), I have always felt that Feynman’s explanations were great.

Now the BBC has archives of some of his best bits. One I love is

How to Enjoy a Trip to the Dentist, a meditation on electromagnetism.

One is my favorite psychology of mirrors

and the  ways of thinking.

Here is something where he maintains that he is not special, and that anyone can be a quantum physicist:

Finally Feynman on the Nobel Prize & Elitist groups: “The prize is in the pleasure of finding something out“. He still sounds like a New York cabbie, though.
