My favorite?

Feynman.

The man was a stone cold genius and loved to poke the bear.

Supposedly, when he was at Los Alamos working on the Manhattan project, he used to sneak out somehow and then walk back through the gate, presenting his ID.

The guards would freak because he never had "officially" left the compound. He said he did it just for that very reason.

He was also one of the best teachers for physics that I can think of (yes that includes Sears and Zemansky).

His "Lectures on Physics" is legendary for a reason. He had a true gift to explain things so that those listening/reading could understand him.


I can bend a bit to that. Still love him and the many inventions he has done and could have done. I inhale anything on him.
