User profile: John Zilbermann


My name at is zilbermann. I have a PhD in theoretical physics, Columbia University 1974, and have been psychiatricly disabled since 1982. Medicare pays me to stay crazy, not a lot, but I don't believe in money anyway. "The love of money is the root of all evil", as mentioned by St. Paul the Apostle in his First Epistle to Timothy, 7:9. When I was a student our Uncle Sam overestimated the number of physicists he would be needing, so he paid for training too many of us. He therefore pays me to stay home so that there will be a job for someone who wants to work.
