And Speaking of Discovering Things. . .
After extolling the joys of finding things out in the post directly below, I couldn't resist linking to this story for those who haven't seen it. Now, this guy is really out there on the edge, and I wish him well with his theory (available here on Arxiv for the mathematically inclined). What I especially like is that he's ready to make some testable predictions.
You know, when Feynman met Dirac, the first thing he mentioned to him was how wonderful it must have been to discover the equation that bears his name. If Garrett Lisi's theory can predict particles out of thin air the way Dirac called the positron, he'll be remembered the same way. Good luck to him, and to those like him.
