One contributor is Richard P. Feynmann:

“On the infrequent occasions when I have been called upon in a formal place to play the bongo drums, the introducer never seems to find it necessary to mention that I also do theoretical physics”

Richard P. Feynmann was an American physicist and Nobel Laureate

Working in the field of Quantum Mechanics for much of his career he once famously said, “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.”

Well if he doesn’t understand it??? I really don’t know why they bothered to try to teach me repeatedly at university!
