You are welcome, Sir!

Well, it's appreciated that you've corrected the formula as it appears in the original article (link: http://www.snopes.com/college/exam/barometer.asp[^], and added some hyperlinks, though it should be appropriate to clearly and unambiguously indicate that your post is essentially a "copy-paste job" of that article, plus some errors and moralization added.

Second, by virtue of reading carefully the comments thread to the same article, you should notice that another person added a correction, pointing at two Danes, Nobel Prize winners for physics, namely:
1). Niels Henrik David Bohr, wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niels_Bohr[^]
2). Benjamin Roy Mottelson, wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Roy_Mottelson[^]

Thus, you should probably make another correction in your post. Last but not least, and sorry for a bit of irony: do you think that the person posting under "Thinking unconventionally" subject line probably should add some examples of such "unconventional thinking" of his/her own, rather than copy-pasting a joke well known for half a century+ under his/her name? I would say so; it's called "lead by example"...
Thanks and regards,
AB
