[quote,history,humanity,personal] Von Neumann QotD

Согласно цитате, любезно расшаренной Дед-Максимом, фон Нойманн был наш человек.

In his work with the military, [von Neumann] preferred admirals to generals because admirals were the heavier drinkers. His biographer Norman Macrae describes him as ‘excessively polite to everybody… except two long-suffering wives,’ one of whom once remarked, ‘He can count everything except calories.’
