Quote notes (#39)

Steve Sailer (on sex sifting between life and death sciences):

The colossal prestige of physics was permanently cemented on July 16, 1945 at Trinity, NM. As the shockwave from the first ever atomic bomb passed beyond the Los Alamos physicists’ observation post, J. Robert Oppenheimer reflected, in the words of the Bhagavad-Gita:

“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

To a highly intelligent adolescent female mind, this most famous quote from the history of 20th Century physics is alien and horrifying. To a certain number of highly intelligent adolescent male minds, however, “destroyer of worlds” is the most awesome thing anybody ever said outside of a comic book.

    For sake of completeness, the most awesome thing ever said inside the “comic book”:

    “Don’t try your powers on me! Try looking into that place where you dare not look. You’ll find me there, staring back at you.”
    “You mustn’t speak…!”
    Silence! I remember your Gom Jabbar — now you’ll remember mine. I can kill with a word.”
    “And his word shall carry death eternal . . .”
