Just found out that my dad's best friend and fellow retired math prof went to school with Kip Thorne. I turned into super geek mode over this. Mr. S turned to my dad and said, "This is proof nerdiness is inherited."
Not totally sure this is true, don't all parents teach their kids how to figure out Fibonacci numbers and want them to grow up to be physicists?
In my grilling him on all things Thorne, I did learn that even among the geeks of Cal Tech, Thorne was a nerd. LOL
