My Alter Ego

This is about John Dalton, my alter ego. The London Science museum is celebrating the 250th anniversary of his birth, as described here .

As you can see from the text, he was Four-eyed, he was English, and he was, most definitely, a genius.

    Very interesting. The boy used to talk about him a fair bit being a nano freak!

    I just read he suffered from red-green colour blindness. Just as well there weren’t traffic lights about in his time. Yes, an interesting piece on a guy from a humble background.

    I had a good friend with Daltonism. When asked about traffic lights he replied, ‘Top and bottom, stoopid!’ 😎
