Hey folks, I am currently laying low with the flu and bronchitis. My body is stuffed after the last few months of drama. The last week of flood and the first couple of days of cleanup, have been absolutely exhausting !
After watching the Oliver Sacks entry on Desktop Diaries, I decided to watch the entire series and was amazed at the differences between people. Oliver sacks struck me as a very grounded down to Earth guy who has all his shit together, while Michio Kaku seems like a scatterbrain who would rather talk about his work than reflect honestly on himself. The differences between the two men, stand out a mile away, when you read their works. Oliver Sacks in particular, was very honest about who he is and his own problems, as he approached the end of his life.
I’ve always been fascinated by the differences between neat and messy people and the differences between a persons public persona and their private persona. Just out of curiosity, do you think I’m neat or messy ? And which camp do you fall in ? And do you think I am any different in private to what I am in public ? And how about you ?
Here’s the rest of the Desktop Diaries on the SciFri YT channel. It would be wonderful to see something like this, that was inclusive of people from all walks of life !
