Particle Fever: the hunt for the Higgs boson
Enjoyed this one. With comprehensible explanations for non-physicists like me.

True dat. Hippies always bitching and moaning about who moved their cheese, where's their cut, yadda yadda narcissism, &c... mine, mine, ... oh, and peace and love.

True dat indeed. I'll give a summary- Ralph Terrance and Rupert talk about shrooms, space, fractals and chaos. Now I know why Sheldrake has such phucked up ideas.

Perhaps not a documentary, but still interesting. An interview with James Simons.

Thanks I will watch that. I have a strong suspicion that Simons' success has little to do with Simons personal trading ability and more to do with his business acumen. He has built a business and he is profiting from the diversified collection of scientists he employs. He's an incredible mathematician but, as is well known, being an incredible mathematician is a default hypothesis and nothing more for being an excellent trader.

Or something like thAt.

LOLOLOLOLOL!

Basically about how the classical psychoanalysis treats
autism (totally wrong.)
Alas in Phrench.

thanks PJ, I'll check it out. I've a nuts and bolts thing going on. My advice to all you whippersnappers is this. Don't go for the pussy. I know it's hard, but trust me on this. In the end, it will just ruin you.

@Nonius, it might sound funny given the subject, but my wife mentioned that TED talk and I've been meaning to watch it for a long time now...

You may feel you wasted your life

"He served in the Boer War, First World War, and Second World War; was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip, and ear; survived two plane crashes; bought an estate in Poland by the Soviet border; tunnelled out of a prisoner-of-war camp; broke his back and recovered; and tore off his own fingers when a doctor refused to amputate them.

Describing his experiences in the First World War, he wrote, "Frankly I had enjoyed the war"

Sadly he went up to Oxford but quit to get stuck in to the Boer.

Double post. Can't embed a URL for some reason.
