Feynman and cowboy duels

  1. Oct 8, 2008 #1
    Hello nerds.

    I was discussing Richard Feymnan the other day and his generally low opinion of psychologists (not unreasonable, at least when he was around).

    However I remembered a story of his about how he thought that in cowboy movies the guy who draws his weapon first (usually the bad guy) always gets shot. This seems sort-of like psychology to me. Annoyingly I can't find a source for this, although I must have read it in Gleick's biog. Can anyone help me to find it?

    Thanks.
