Dammit, I knew I'd missed a few:


And, since I somehow think she'll not be showing up now:

Darn. Both Bunsen Honeydew and Dr. Forrester were on the original list that I lost, and I forgot to include them when I resubmitted. CURSE YOU, SESSION TIMEOUTS!

I'm hoping there will be some redress of that in the top ten....

And, being familiar with the intertubes, I think my hopes may be met.

Oh yes, he was an absolute turd, but I think more people are coming to see that now.

Man, Sagan got beat by that immoral douchebag of a huckster Thomas Edison? You guys suck.
Don't blame me. I didn't vote for im... ;)

I am surprised to see Dr. Forrester only at #12.

Bunsen Honeydew

82 points - 7 lists - Highest Position: 6 (Darth Geek)
On my list.  And he accomplished more with no eyes than most have with 2.  Mostly it involved killing beaker, but they are accomplishments nonetheless.

15


Archimedes

85 points - 5 lists - Highest Position: 3 (Compound)

Also the inventor of the fake beard.  I'll admit, he captured my attention mostly based on his nudity filled anecdote, but it is a good story to teach water displacement and he came up a lot in my physics classes in high school when talking about the "seven inventions".  Also, The Quest of the Delta Knights is terrible.

13


Thaddeus Venture

95 points - 6 lists - Highest Position: 1 (Pak-Man)
Portrayed By: James Urbaniak (animated series)
Short Biography
Sure, his dad was the real brains, but for all his sins, I can sympathize with him more.


12

Clayton Forrester
I got to admit, I want a re-comfybike.  It's like a snuggy for the road!

11


Larry Flint

107 points - 6 lists - Highest Position: 1 (Johnny Unusual)

A fucking cool guy and a great wit.  I've never read his stuff, but just hearing him talk about physics is always an eye-opening experience and is able to articulate wonderfully not only his ideas but also the weight and scope of them.  Of course, that's mostly in speeches and soundbytes.  I'm sure while he's also interesting in his writing, it's probably more daunting.  Also, he's a Red Dwarf fan, so number one with a bullet for me.

That's because he's a naughty boy.  Naughty naughty naughty.

Wish I had sent some votes in for this.

Carl Sagan is criminally low.  Edison should be disqualified for being a thief.

Hope you don't disappoint on Werner Von Braun, Sergei Korolev and Harrison Schmitt people!

  One of my favorite parts of those segments on the Muppet Show was that the inventions didn't ALWAYS fail. Just whatever backfire would cause the most damage to Beaker.
  The best example of this (annd probably my favorite one of all time) was Fireproof Paper. Which did NOT work, and cought on fire. Followed by the use of Flammable Water, which DID work, and cought on fire.

von Braun is high on my list. However, having a father who works at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville means I hear a lot about him.

Carl Sagan didn't even occur to me.

Marie Curie was the only female I had. Now I do wish I had included Ada Lovelace also.
