Richard Fenyman is the man.
Edit: Whoops! Feynman. Darn dyslexia... :) Although I kind of like the sound of Feny-man.
This made me laugh today, not least because it hits close to home. I KNOW people like this. One of the myriad reasons World's Best School is a humbling place is because there are people here who operate like this on a daily basis. Sadly, not me.
May all your problems be solvable with the Feynman approach this week!
