Wow, im amazed at the lack of response here!
Im really surprised this thread didnt take off in a huge way, so ill give my second drinking buddy: George Washington Carver.
Just the fact that he had so many great inventions is only part of it.
What he did to overcome the racism to get any, if at all, of the recognition he did.
And also see how many of his ideas were stolen and falsley copyrighted by someone else.
Im a huge fan of science and tinkering with stuff, and generally messing around with trying to make things.
