One day, all of the world's famous physicists decided to get together for a tea luncheon. Fortunately, the doorman was a grad student, and able to observe some of the guests...
  • Everyone gravitated toward Newton, but he just kept moving around at a constant velocity and showed no reaction.

  • Einstein thought it was a relatively good time.

  • Coulomb got a real charge out of the whole thing.

  • Cavendish wasn't invited, but he had the balls to show up anyway.

  • Cauchy, being the only mathematician there, still managed to integrate well with everyone.

  • Thompson enjoyed the plum pudding.

  • Pauli came late, but was mostly excluded from things, so he split.

  • Pascal was under too much pressure to enjoy himself.

  • Ohm spent most of the time resisting Ampere's opinions on current events.

  • Hamilton went to the buffet tables exactly once.

  • Volt thought the social had a lot of potential.

  • Hilbert was pretty spaced out for most of it.

  • Heisenberg may or may not have been there.

  • The Curies were there and just glowed the whole time.

  • van der Waals forced himeself to mingle.

  • Wien radiated a colourful personality.

  • Millikan dropped his Italian oil dressing.

  • de Broglie mostly just stood in the corner and waved.

  • Hollerith liked the hole idea.

  • Stefan and Boltzman got into some hot debates.

  • Everyone was attracted to Tesla's magnetic personality.

  • Compton was a little scatter-brained at times.

  • Bohr ate too much and got atomic ache.

  • Watt turned out to be a powerful speaker.

  • Hertz went back to the buffet table several times a minute.

  • Faraday had quite a capacity for food.

  • Oppenheimer got bombed.
