Oops, I learned something again!
What do Britney Spears and semiconductor physics have in common?
Well according to this site,
quite a bit.
It is a little known fact that Ms. Spears is an expert in semiconductor
physics. Not content with just singing and acting, in the following pages she
will guide you through the fundamentals of the vital laser components that have made
it possible to hear her super music in a digital format.
Britney Spears was not the first star to juggle the weight of fame and a gift
for technical matters. Austrian-born ’30s and ’40s film star
Hedy Lamarr was also a gifted electrical engineer.
Lamarr was frequently quoted as saying, ” Any girl can be glamorous. All you

Again, this site is something that has to be seen to be believed.
Horrifyingly enough, you may actually learn something.
