Richard Joseph "Dick" Davisson (December 29, 1922 – June 15, 2004) was an American physicist.
- "There are no physicists in the hottest parts of Hell, because the existence of a 'hottest part' implies a temperature difference, and any marginally competent physicist would immediately use this to run a heat engine and make some other part of Hell comfortably cool. This is obviously impossible."
- "A physicist should have both a Wife and a Mistress and furthermore each should be aware of the other. That way,the Wife will think he is with his Mistress and the Mistress will think he is with his Wife and he can go to the lab and get some work done."
