Splendid and perspicacious scientist and engineer. I don’t know why we don’t credit this chap more often. They (say that they) don’t even mention him at all, in the “GCSE” Nazi “National” “Curriculum”. Some better teachers might, but either their students aren’t listening and will not notice, or else the teachers will get suspended for “not delivering the syllabus”. Hat tip Freedom and Whisky.
