I discovered the other day that
Richard Feynman was a synesthete.

I wonder how many of these brillant scientists had/have this ability/curse (?). I mean all things considered it must be a help being able to manipulate numbers using addive/optical color-mixing...

"To many, Richard Feynman is an inspiration. Without a doubt, he was the same caliber of man, as well as scientist, as Carl Sagan, Neil Degrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye."

I don't think these are the people most of us would have compared him too. Clearly more journalist than physicist writing this.
