Book 14: Surely You are joking Mr. Feynman
很久以前 tim 就喜欢费曼。那个时候的我，too young too naive. 去年阿秋山楂也说一定要看费曼阿！ 我今年就看了一下。 啊呀！我好喜欢费曼阿。
数学 homotopy 之前的都 pretty good，
但是按他自己的话说就是， i practiced hard!
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself– and you are the easiest person to fool. So you have to be very careful about that
An attitude that anything can happen, in spite of what you are pretty sure should happen.
I eventually got to be the head of the team.
I went of all places unitl i got it
You should find out how the rest world is
it was beautifully engineered
i could do that, but i won’t, which is another way of saying you can’t
You have no responsilibity to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish, i have no responsibity to be like they expected me to be. it is their mistake, not mine failing
I thought to myself: you know where you learn all that stuff?
— From Mary Lou
Good, Give me one example, I can’t understand anything in general unless i’m carrying along in my mind a specific example and watching it go
Concentrate on your breath, on how it goes in and out of your nose as you breathe
他没有怎么说他第二个妻子，但是就是那一句，这些知识都是从mary Lou 那里学来的，就很打动我。我会想，会不会有人去博物馆，听到某些音乐的时候，想起我跟他们讲过的那些瓷器的故事，或者想起原来有个女生跟我拉过这个曲子．．．
French Curve: lowest point in each curve, no matter how you turn it, the tagent is horizontal
Eye’s were beaming with happiness
Cut an orange in finite many pieces and put it together
it is as big as the sum?
but you said an orange!
we assumed continuity
i got up to Homotopy groups.
At lease I’m living, at least i m doing something, at least i’m making some contributions.
Is there a better way to present the material?
are there any new problems associated with them?
e^2.3 is about 10
Familiar with Log tables
1729.03 cube roots is about 12.002
Solve problem by trial and error
Dresden Codes (584 ≈ 583.923)
He thinks i’m following the steps mathematically, but that’s not what i’m doing. I have the specific, physical example of what he’s trying to analyze.
我超级喜欢这部分，为什么数学家都喜欢拿桔子作比喻。没有什么苹果，葡萄柚之类的。 他说数学家眼睛里有光。我相信的，因为我真的看到过！还有hausdorff space. 我记得８０说hausdorff 是一个很孤独的空间，因为无论多近的两点总能被分开成两个集合。
In a Hausdorff space, any point and a disjoint compact subspace can be separated by open sets
Alex 特别生气，说it is ok to vote me out, but with a bunch of mathematicians, every draw is an independent event! you got to give me a better reason!
我有好多后悔的事情，但是教书的时候没有很用心是我最后悔的事情之一。８０ 会准备的好仔细。哪里讲故事，哪里讲笑话，哪里讲定义和例子。他会自己想怎么解释continuous δ,ε 的方法。我通常就是拿了他的方法，照葫芦画瓢，没有自己好好想过，我要怎么讲。
除了fibonacci sequence 我结合了音乐的理论和音程。自己没有很好的准备过课。大概现在才这么努力写blog 吧。

Feynman: you mean pink?
people’s hands smell very different
Will you sleep with me tonight?
You can buy whatever, Cause you are paying for it!
May I observe your garden
After reading the salary, I’ve decided i must refuse…..
With the salary I can get a wonderful mistress….
I wouldn’t be able to do physics well, and it will be a big mess.
Frog talks written as “brek, kek, kek”. I thought, “No frog eve made a sound like that; that’s crazy way to describe it”. so i tried it, and after practicing it awhile, i realized that it’s very accurately what a frog says.
I got kicked out of succeeding at something I wasn’t supposed to be able to do
Everything was entirely memorized yet, nothing had been translated to meaniful words
He never said it was wrong, he never put me down.
In math/physics methods, that we never stop telling students how to do things, the drawing teacher is afraid to tell you anything.
physics teacher has the problem of always teaching techniques, rather than the spirit, of how to go about solving physical problems
Sistine Chapel, Raphael Room (2 paints are not good)
I ended up draw face, because i don’t know how to bring it up the subject of posing nude
Magnetic field lines(it was similar to a girl’s flowing hair), I wanted to draw something beautiful that no artist would think to draw.
Art gives somebody, individually, pleasure. In science, it’s sort of general and large: You don’t know the individuals who have appreciated it directly
I practiced drawing all the time, and became very intresting.
If i was at a meeting that wasn’t going anywhere, I would draw other people
I had a little pad of paper I kept with me and I practiced drawing whereever I want. So, as Jerry taught me, I worked very hard.
我小时候搬到长沙， 妈妈换了工作，事业不是很顺心。他们也要开会，我妈妈单位上90年代国企领导就是饭桶，还是很坏的人。他们自己没文化，还要嫉妒我妈妈。 我有的时候翻我妈妈的本子， 我记得都是一版一版的字。后来妈妈才说，开会的时候她很烦，只有练字能让她安心。 这么多年过去了，那些饭桶领导都不知道去哪里了，但是我妈妈因为有自己的追求，现在是个小有名气的书画家了。我虽然总是说我妈妈的”坏话”，但是bottom line 我心里好尊重她的一点就是不管面对什么样的生活境遇，她一直在写字画画。 有的时候我也会好累啊，但是看到我妈妈从来没有停过，我也就抗过去了。 p.s. 我妈妈也总说我的坏话。 那天我说我要练字。她很认真地跟我说，你别写了，你那个字等下越写越差，还不如不写，起码不会更差。哈哈哈…
费曼说他的朋友教他画画从来都想办法鼓励他。我想到yuki, 她总说i really like your musical idea, but you have to play the right music! 总是鼓励我， you can be a lot sexier while you play this phrase. 我总是怕音不准. 她说，just be brave! even it is wrong, nobody is gunna to notice it. 她是第一个跟我说, you play very well, it is obvious you had formal training and you will be great!
Drum( Africa vs Ithaca)
Nigeria Ukonu (bongos)
at one of the night clubs, he invited me to come up on stage with them and play a little. So i got up there with the other guys and played along with them on the drum for a little while
after practicing again and again I finally got it straight and played it in the show. I was pretty successful.
That had to be the same: that was hard.
