Smarter than Feynmann

“These videos”:http://www.lmm.jussieu.fr/spaghetti/ depict one of the purest pieces of research I have ever seen: research so pure that it is, in fact, impossible to think of a use for this discovery — at the same time, I defy you not to smile when you discover the secrets of spaghetti which defeated Richard Feynmann.

The original story I found in a paper edition of the _Economist,_ and it increases the considerable reverence with which I regard that paper’s science correspondents.
