That's engineering, not physics...

Anyway, is he a physicist or an "artist and inventor"?

David Neevel, an artist and inventor based in Portland, Ore., was commissioned by the popular cookie brand...
At least he doesn't seem to be a published academic.

Still, it must be better than eating the foul discs of shame.

What makes him 'heroic'? As someone said on NPR this morning, he could have better spent those hours finding a cookie he likes that doesn't have cream filling.

He must have had the Oreo with the spider. I don't blame him for hating the creme.

As an aside, doesn't he look like that 21st Century insurance guy in the commercials?
