Thanks to all for writing some very
entertaining and well-phrased haiku!  After
input and deliberation from admins, section
advisors and other physics folk, winners
have been selected in four categories:

Thought-Provoking
Concise Physics
Humorous
Historical

All winners will receive an Einstein cube,
rainbow glasses and an uber-pen - these
prizes are extremely snazzy and will inspire
envy in all who behold them!

There will be NO COMPLAINING as to the
choices, since there was a voting thread
here and nobody spoke up.  Resistance is
futile.

On to the winners...

pricey physics text
cannot afford to buy it
too big to xerox
