No more bullshit the 999 dirty dating secret pdf
(talk) , 1 January 2010 (UTC) Incidentally Feynman went to Cornell for a number of years before he went to California. He would have had a tough time at IAS with Oppenheimer, anyway (Dyson certainly did). --98.2 (talk) , 6 February 2010 (UTC) Oppenheimer's personality had an enormous effect on his life. It may be the most important factor in his life, next to his intelligence.Oppenheimer did not like Feynman diagrams and criticized them harshly. Several top scientists mysteriously refused to work at Los Alamos.Lestrade (talk) , 10 September 2009 (UTC)Lestrade The last seems unlikely, as there's at least one photo of a Los Alamos seminar (actually it's in this Wiki) where Feynman is sitting next to JRO. Feynman states that he was specifically repelled by the IAS (Institute for Advanced Salaries) because he would NOT have to teach, and he found students stimulating to creativity. In fact, Oppenheimer wrote a glowing letter of recommendation for Feynman to the physics department at Berkeley, identifying him as “a second Dirac, only this time human”.Also, BTW Feynman during his life turned down much more lucritive teaching jobs at other universities, simply because he liked California and the warm. Feynman did not go to Berkeley, so he may have felt snubbed, but the teaching reasons seem more likely.I would like to know what the general policy on this issue is.--Jrm2007 (talk) , 9 August 2008 (UTC) The policy is that we don't do bio info on people whose main claim to notablity is relationships to the notable (royalty being the nearest to exception).There's more info about Toni Oppenheimer in the article because she's not living, but Peter is a living person subject to BLP policy, who obviously values his privacy (there is relatively little about him even in the most recent Oppenheimer bio). In this section it says: "During his hearing, Oppenheimer testified willingly on the left-wing behavior of many of his scientific colleagues.Cornell University historian Richard Polenberg has speculated that if Oppenheimer's clearance had not been stripped (it would have expired in a matter of days anyhow, as he knew while testifying), he would have been remembered as someone who had "named names" to save his own reputation." It's not clear what this is based on.
Lestrade (talk) , 17 December 2009 (UTC)Lestrade I met Haakon at my Garnamoher;s house at 1520 willardd st."was an idiot" is just too short for the article to retain both context and summary style.Oppenheimer uttered the phrase while being questioned about Chevalier; he called himself an 'idiot' to have indulged in replication of the cloak-and-dagger secrecy he had seen all around him when originally keeping Chevalier's name secret and substituting the alias Eltenton.Theonemacduff (talk) , 23 September 2008 (UTC) Tomy Duby (talk) , 12 October 2008 (UTC) What about making mention of his family (wife, perhaps Tatlock [but that's discussable], son, daughter, brother, etc.) in the "infobox" (excuse me, unfortunately, I'm unfamilar with how to make this change).panth0r (talk) , 31 October 2008 (UTC) Perhaps an interesting item to add to this article, that Oppenheimer tried to poison one of his professors, future Nobel Prize laureate Patrick Blackett, while at Cambridge University. Oppenheimer was one of the most brilliant theoreticians of the 20th century.
