Perhaps Bill Gates is not evil…

OK – we all know the guy’s image.

We all also know he’s thrown a lot of money around to change this image….with very little success.

But, with this one, he just might convince me!

Bill Gates is releasing all seven Messenger Lectures that Richard Feynman gave at Cornell in 1964.  With subtitles!!!  (And, let’s admit it – Richard Feynman’s accent was not all that easy to understand.  So, subtitles are a really, really good thing.)

Unless, of course, this is some trick to get us all to download some really invasive software in order to watch them:  ‘the Feynman lure’ would be iresistable to any mortal!

This is one of the most beautiful patterns I have ever seen:  mousing over it and seeing how the pattern changes has kept me occupied for hours!

(Hence, no other post… but it is worth it!)


Despite trying, I cannot seem to be able to embed this into my blog!!!  Disappointing!!!

OK –  here is the next best thing:  the link. And, please notice that you can go to other images, too!  Just follow the icon on the bottom right and click left or right.  Some of the other images are also WAY better than any TV show!

Hours of entertainment!
