Nobel Prize Physics Ithaca NY Cornell University?
NOT - not even in a drunken delirium!
Robert. C. Landrum (High School Physic Teacher) " I really don't think that you have
any understanding of what it means to be a scientist..."
Thomas Edison: "...the product of 0% inspiration and 100% intoxication."
Galileo Gallilei: "They looked through my telescope and saw the moons of Jupiter, but they didn't believe it.
I look at this monstrosity, and I prefer not to believe it."
Nicolai Tesla: "I also have strange, sick invention fantasies, but I ignore the vast majority of them."
Thomas Watson: "There is room on this planet for exactly zero of these."
Hans Bethe: "...a shameless and vile affront to everything I believe in and stand for in Physics."
Erwin Schrodinger: "The scientist only imposes two things upon himself and other scientists,
truth and sincerity. This has neither."
Charles H. Duell: "It was apparently shortsighted of me to say that everything
absurd and worthless has already been invented."
Max Planck: "...not even worthy of being completely ignored."
Richard P. Feynman: "I have a sense of humor too, but this thing strains it far beyond the breaking point."
Ezra Cornell: "When I said I would found an institution where anyone can study anything,
I clearly overestimated human nature."
Robert C. Richardson: " I hired him for two years as a student intern in my low temperature lab,
but I regrettably missed the telltale signs of madness. Dr. Richard Reppy and I won the Nobel Prize,
but this guy? Descent into darkest insanity, oh well, too bad."

The world had high hopes: N.J. State Science Day Competition 2nd Place 1966, perfect scores on
Physics and Calculus College Boards, early admission to Cornell, but in vain: a complete false alarm.
