The Friday 56, What Do You Care What Other People THink?

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it to Freda's Voice.

The book this week is “What Do You Care What Other People Think?” by Richard P. Feynman. Physicist Feynman tells stories from his life. For some reason I find this guy very interesting.

The sentence:

I was stirring Jell-O and watching it closely: I had gotten curious as to whether Jell-O would coagulate in the cold if you kept it moving all the time.

I guess that’s what physicists do for fun. There was no word on whether it set up or not. It was not what the story was about but if he was going to mention it, it would have been nice to know how it turned out.

You're right it would have been nice if he'd shared the result. This does sound fun in an off-beat kind of way.

Here's mine:
