Can Physicists Be Funny?
I’ve caught a few episodes of “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman” on the Science Channel and found a fellow “Stanek.” While I have no reason to believe there is a direct familial connection, I do know that some of my grandparents’ relatives ended up in Chicago, which is home town to particle physicist Bob Stanek. Imagine my delight in finding out that not only is Bob a physicist, he also believes in having a sense of humor, contrary to what Dr. Sheldon Cooper of “The Big Bang Theory” may think. I encourage you to check out the Wall Street Journal article explaining the connection between science and humor. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122048206487796841.html?mod=hpp_us_pageone
