    I noticed this with the kids that had parent/s with them. I thought it was neat that these parents expressed how much more their kid knew about physics than they did. Handed out a few cards to them so they could maybe get one-up on their kids. They were thankful.

    Actually it doesn't say anything to me, except two skinny persons (young and old) are advertising liquors and physics forums T shirts.

    Dlgoff is a shameless physics proselyte, doing his proslytism wherever he sees fit.

    And who is who ?

    BTW, that background of the photo reminds me of the Tesla coil's master oscillator set by Tesla in Colorado Springs, A.D. 1899 :)

    I hope you do. What a good leader we have. The story of his creation of PF is very inspiring to me and will be to many future PFers I'm sure. And to have a brew with him .... wow.

    Keep your eyes open lisab. I'm sure he would be open to attending a big Science Festival near you.

    The guy on the left is Greg, he created PF. We refer to him as Lord And Master. On the right is Don, a beloved, longtime PFer:

    Really ? Ohhh this is the first time I see Greg. Many people are afraid to be seen in public. So he doesn't look like an online gamer :D.

    You forget "Battlestar Captain"!

    I switched religions one day, because of Don.

    Thank you for clearing that up. I had no idea what the hell that picture was about. It certainly doesn't look anything like the last picture that I saw of him some 10 years or so back when I first joined here. He seems to have lost weight and partially "unnerded" himself.

    No. I thought that he was young, geeky, and pudgy.

    Being young and geeky is how I recognized him when arriving at the Wisconsin Science Festival. :)
