    In 1978, Feynman was diagnosed with liposarcoma, a rare form of cancer. He underwent successful surgery, but a decade later the illness returned. Further operations were performed in 1986 and 1987. He was hospitalized at the UCLA Medical Center on February 3, 1988. A ruptured duodenal ulcer caused kidney failure. He declined to undergo dialysis, and died on February 15th.

    According to the comments, this somewhat disturbing video was made about two weeks before he died. The song was a take on Linus Pauling's letter to Feynman advising him to get more Vitamin C to possibly cure his cancer.

    Four Jokes from Richard Feynman to Product Management
    by Poornima Farrar

    Richard Feynman’s autobiography, “Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman” is an amazing read in many ways. I was drawn to it also from the perspective of a product manager who is always looking for parallels across different fields in order to improve my tradecraft. Fortunately, Feynman is a wonderful storyteller and I felt that many of his stories directly applied to building skills for managing products. Here are a few.
