Along those lines, I once had the pleasure of meeting Richard Davisson, a truly world renowned physicist. He had a summer home in Brooklin, Maine, a few towns down the coast from my place. Since my parents were academicians, I often came in contact with their friends and acquaintances, one of whom was Professor Davisson. He was the son and nephew of Nobel laureates. Professor Davisson's storied career included working on the Manhattan Project and inventing the system that detected sub-atomic particles. That's right, CERN owes its existence to him. I could go on and on, but instead I will cut to my favorite Professor Daivsson quote:
"There are no physicists in the hottest parts of hell, because the existence of a 'hottest part' implies a temperature difference, and any marginally competent physicist would immediately use this to run a heat engine and make some other part of hell comfortably cool."
Differential temperatures in Hell prove no physicists have ever been condemned to eternal damnation... How the heck did he think to even ask the question?
