The Top 10 Crazy B*****ds Who Actually Changed the World (For the Better) | SPIKE

These guys - and they are all men - were crazy, demented, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced, unhinged - but they all have one thing in common - they changed the world for the better. 

Some names you will reognize - such as Samuel Morse and others you will discover here for the first time. 

They all helped humanity move on in one shape or form and they were all pretty mad. 

I think perhaps my favorite here is Tycho Brahe who paved the way for astronomers such as Galileo.  He really knew how to party, yes sirree.

This was a really interesting read....the most surprising was the man editing the dictionary. What a brilliant mind, but perversely out of his mind. Intriguing read.
