It says here that Feynman's "'There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom' talk was part of the Nobel Laureate's legendary 'Feynman on Physics' lectures, which were captured and spread in the then-new medium of videotape." In fact, the 'There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom' talk was given at an APS meeting in 1959, it had nothing to do with his (1961-64) legendary 'Feynman Lectures on Physics', and neither of them were videotaped.
You write "Feynman (et al) came up with the Electo-Weak theory which folded in the weak nuclear force into Maxwell's model and earned Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, Julian Schwinger and Richard P. Feynman the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965." Steven Weinberg, not Feynman, came up with the electroweak theory. Feynman shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics with Sin-Itiro Tomonaga and Julian Schwinger for his work on quantum electrodynamics.

You write: "Feynman came up with his electron spin equations by watching a plate on the floor." Feynman did not "come up" with anything (in his scientific work) from watching a plate. The plate you refer to, in ignorance of it's significance to Feynman, was not on the floor.
