in this photo, Richard Feynman looks kinda like Max Payne. Jaques 08:45, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Why do things fall?
In Surely you must be joking, Mr. Feynman, Feynman relates a story in which he asked his father: why is it that when I carry a ball in my wagon, the ball lurches forward when I stop pulling the wagon. And when I start pulling the wagon, the ball lurches back initially, and then stops moving. His father explained that objects tend to resist a change in motion, but that no one knows why. It was this deep observation that impressed Feynman later on as an adult. The story about gravity given on the page, I believe, is a mistaken version of the story I just related here.--Lemonpeel 03:25, 7 July 2008 (EDT)
A Nobel Laureate of Feynman's caliber deserves a little more discussion on his contribution to physics. Surely Feynman diagrams alone do not do justice to his body of work.--Lemonpeel 03:31, 7 July 2008 (EDT)
