Quadra Village, Victoria, 1950


The two buildings in focus are still there and still being used. They've been trying very hard to gentrify the entire city, but this one area is stubbornly resisting. Which means there was a payday loan place and a methadone clinic in the same complex as a restaurant that charged $28 for plain scrambled eggs.

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! - Richard Feynman

I like Math, and because a lot of Math people like physics, someone I knew recommended me a few hard and soft physics books to get me interested.

I was on board until I got to this one. Most of it is obnoxiously arrogant. The rest is psychotic. The chapter "You Just Ask Them" - where he rants about how women are "worthless bitches" and deserve to be abused and should have sex with him whether they want to or not - reads like the unapologetic confession of a serial killer after the police start discovering bodies.

And, it turns out, Feynman was so aggressively sexually abusive towards his students - even by the standards of the 60s and 70s - that he inspired numerous protests.

I want to make something abundantly clear: If you like this or think that it's clever, you are a person with serious mental health issues, and you are possibly dangerous to yourself and others. You need to seek professional help from a psychologist.
