Spanish Nobelist stamps

In 2006, Spain issued stamps recognizing their two winners of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. A 0.51 € stamp showed the 1906 winner, Spanish histologist Santiago Ramón y Cajal with a diagram of nerve cells. A 0.76 € stamps showed the 1959 winner, Spanish-American biochemist and molecular biologist Severo Ochobeside a diagram of part of a DNA molecule. The 1906 award was shared with Camillo Golgi, “in recognition of their work on the structure of the nervous system.” The 1959 award was shared with Arthur Kornberg, “for their discovery of the mechanisms in the biological synthesis of ribonucleic acid and deoxyribonucleic acid.” As of 2011, these were the only two Spanish scientists to receive a Nobel prize, though five Nobel Prizes for Literature were presented to Spaniards.«

A golf challenge

A young man, who was also an avid golfer, found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in 9 holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off, an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old man to join him.

To his surprise, the old man played fairly quickly. He didn't hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time.

Finally, they reached the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball and directly between his ball and the green.

After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot, the old man finally said, "You know, when I was your age, I'd hit the ball right over that tree."

With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lay.

The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age, that pine tree was only 3 feet tall."
