What was the deal with Niels bohr, I've read a lot about quantum interpretations lately and it seems he had childish tantrums towards anyone or anything who said anything but copenhagen, he destroyed everett and made him quit physics, he went into seizures everytime anyone spoke of bohmian and everlasting discussions with einstein into the night...

Was he... close minded ?:P
Hmm..what if he was?
Newton was a misanthropic, mean-spirited closet queen who heaped ad hominems on other scientists like Robert Hooke. Brilliant human trash, that is.

Apart from his understandable postwar animosity towards Nazi golden boy Heisenberg, the only thing I know about Niels Bohr's private life is that he loved cowboy movies.
