Today would have been my Grandpa’s birthday. He was the one who made me want to be an engineer.
Tiny family coincidence: my grandpa was 30 years and 10 days old when my mother was born. My mother was exactly the same age when I was born. Somewhere in one of Hugh Everett’s parallel worlds, I have a kid who is nearly four.
Did you know that quantum mechanic Hugh Everett begat Mark Oliver Everett, otherwise known as E of the band Eels. Families, eh?
