    • Maria Goepert Meyer could get a Nobel prize but not a regular job. IIRC, she got a position only 2 years before the Nobel prize but she did not do much work after that!

      One of my friend shared his office (and the telephone) with PAM Dirac and every time I called him, Dirac used to pick up the telephone. It took me sometime to figure out that it is the same Dirac! Imagine that here!
