After school on Friday, this was my desk.
For over twenty years I have referred to whatever desk I am using as "the landfill." As an inverate piler, I have often driven my wife to distraction with the mess of my home office area. I just seem to work well in this kind of environment.
Also for over twenty years I have had this sign somewhere near my classroom desk:
Dr. Michio Kaku recently posted some pictures of Einstein's desk as it looked shortly after he died.
Seems like I was right. Einstein and I have at least our "landfills" in common.
