a handful of dimes and a jukebox

If you don’t mind cozying up to Bill Gates (sounds yucky, I know), you can watch the amazing Richard Feynman giving some lectures.  I’ve read some of his lectures, but seeing and hearing him is really a fun experience.  If you have any interest in physics or science (it’s all about what’s going on.  are you interested in what’s going on?), give them a watch.  It requires you to install silverlight (it is Microsoft after all), and won’t run (for me, at least) on Chrome, but the interface is pretty nicely done.

And after watching the first lecture, I have to wonder if Douglas Adams had ever heard or read this lecture?  (i.e. listen for the number “42” )
