This is delicious. Feynman probably was the single greatest influence on my life. I’d turned 17 when I first sat in his physics class. I heard his famous stories (Surely You are Joking, Mr. Feynman) from him, when he visited Page House, my dorm.
And then Penn, of Penn & Teller, really fun! What a great story! Imagine being a young magician and having that happen to you!
I suspect that Penn and I could have some healthy disagreements or even deeper agreements. He’s one person I’d love to meet.
