who haven't died yet?
Prof. R who teaches my aeroelasticity and vibrations class is from Israel and speaks English with an accent. The accent isn't bad (though I could have sworn he was talking about a generalized mess instead of a generalized mass...it so confused me). But he has...interesting ways of expressing things.
Today, we heard a brief tangent lecture (that's a lecture on something not directly related to the topic at hand) about Dr. Theodore Theodorsen, a great aerodynamicist who doesn't get as much recognition as he should.
The best part was when Dr. Theodore Theodorsen was descibed as a living scientist of his time. And yes, he is dead now. But he was a living scientist when he was still alive. And now I'm wondering what he would have done if he had been a dead scientist of his time...
P.s. Theodore Theodorsen really is the guy's name.
