hi guys - i manage a group of scientists and engineers working in the environmental field, and i hold unit meetings once a month. at the end of each meeting, i do "storytime" for my group, which is, by far, the most interesting part of our meetings. in the past, i have read selected magazine articles on a wide variety of topics, both funny and serious, an 1865 letter from chief seattle to the president of US (very moving), philosphical materials from several writers, articles by einstein, articles about ancient mysteries (some of my favorite stuff - ancient masonry, cuzco, pyramids, etc), and have recently read them some short sections from feynman's QED, and taught them some basic subatomic physics. most of them have never been exposed to the fundamental mysteries of quantum physics. i would really appreciate some suggestions from you guys on new materials like this that i can share with my staff - any kind of material is fair game, as long as it is interesting, or educational, or even just funny (once i just read them about 50 of the quotes i picked up from the philosophy forum here). it needs to be something i can read/deliver in about 5-15 minutes or so. thanks for any ideas.
