Happy birthday Richard Feynman!

“Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough."
-Richard P. Feynman 

Happy birthday to the late Richard Feynman! 

Richard Feynman was a Nobel Prize winning physicist and an overall awesome man. He was very much an eccentric and cool character. He worked on the atomic bomb and made groundbreaking discoveries in quantum physics, but was also an artist, safecracker, bongo-player... he was very much a well-rounded and interesting character.  Stories chronicling his crazy adventures can be found in his semi-autobiographical books "Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman" and "Classical Feynman". Feynman is one of my idols; not only was he absolutely brilliant, but he also knew there was more to life than just physics and math; he in fact said "Physics isn't the most important thing. Love is." 

Again happy birthday to Richard Feynman, one of the most individuals to ever live.
