Just because ...

... he's one of my very few heroes, and this clip makes me realize how much I owe him to the extent that I have any joie de vivre at all, and how sorely I wish he were still around.

What a wonderful clip! It's so easy to relate to his enthusiasm!

Great video. Feynman is the greatest.

I love how he personifies atoms and molecules. That must be what people do with anything they work with a lot. In computer science we're always referring to variables and objects as if they were people, using personal pronouns and such to refer to them.

Did you see the other 17 Feynman videos?
