  1. Thanks so much for linking to this. It’s like going back in time to listen to Newton himself. When I was 13 years old, my father had a sabbatical in Cambridge for 6 months, and I remember walking over a wooden bridge designed by Newton that did not use use any bolts to hold it together. Years later they took it apart to replace some rotted pieces, and they couldn’t put it back together they way he had constructed it. What a genius.

    • Thanks for your reply @fractad. It is really good to read and write about genius like Newton. Thanks for you info about the bridge designed by Newton. That must be fantastic experience. I didn’t know it.
