I have several personal favorites in this list, with two being George Halas and Dr. Stefan Humphries. Most people recognize Halas as the co-founder of the National Football League, but few know of Humphries. There are a couple of good stories from Sports Illustrated in the 1980s about Humphries. See the index below. One is called "He Came Out Picture Perfect." The other is "The Can't Miss Kid."

My computer hates this website too. Don't bother scrolling till page is finished loading as it will jump what you are reading offscreen anway. Amazon, ebay,yahoo - none of these do it. Only hardware people at EDN?

My computer hates your website.  Much much worse than any other website.

Pages take forever to load.

I'd spend more time on this site if it was easier and quicker to navigate.

You've gone two rounds, pretended that people should be surprised that astronauts have engineering backgrounds, and even extended your definition of engineer to include Scott Adams, and still not mentioned "Weird Al" Yankovic, who got his bachelor's degree in Architecture at the San Luis Obispo campus of Cal Poly? Really?

I thought the first list was more interesting, too.  Alfred Hitchcock surprised me, Bill Nye didn't.

I'm pretty sure old Eyebrows Brezhnev passed away in 1982, not 1972.

Bill Nye is another one that I didn't expect.  Recently I saw a clip where he is bashing anyone who doesn't believe the religion of evolution.  What happened to his education of not having preconceived notions but to test everything?
