That Thomas Edison didn’t wash, and was convinced that changing his clothes would alter his body’s chemistry, and not in a good way. That strange trait plus the weirdness of other famous types can be found in this New Yorker book review.

Yep, he was pretty darned kooky, also.

I shave, shower, change clothes on a regular basis so I'm definitely no genius. In fact, even if I stop doing those things there's little danger of me becoming one.
Boringly normal is me (that is, when the CIA isn't beaming subliminal messages to the teeny-tiny receivers the AF dentists implanted in my fillings).
