I was taking a look at the Cool Site of the day on netscape and came across an article about an eccentric englishman during WWII. I've always liked the eccentrics that have played a role in history where ever their from. But as eccentric brits go nobody beats them.

The Brits do seem to have some of the most creative nutters.
Not that the Yanks don't have their share as well.

I'm proud to have an English ancestry, and a few nuts in my own family. I think these people add more spice to life by giving their creativity to the world.

Here's to all the eccentrics on the planet.....

From the site:


He startled train conductors and passenger by throwing his attaché out of the train window each day on the ride home. Before he died in 1996, he explained that he was tossing his case into his own backyard so he wouldn’t have to carry it from the station.




What a guy, eccentricity is lacking in todays world
