23. Hedy Lamarr


Bet you didn't know that Hedy was a pioneer in wireless communication:



snip: Although better known for her Silver Screen exploits, Austrian actress Hedy Lamarr (born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler) also became a pioneer in the field of wireless communications following her emigration to the United States. The international beauty icon, along with co-inventor George Anthiel, developed a "Secret Communications System" to help combat the Nazis in World War II. By manipulating radio frequencies at irregular intervals between transmission and reception, the invention formed an unbreakable code to prevent classified messages from being intercepted by enemy personnel.

Lamarr and Anthiel received a patent in 1941, but the enormous significance of their invention was not realized until decades later. It was first implemented on naval ships during the Cuban Missile Crisis and subsequently emerged in numerous military applications. But most importantly, the "spread spectrum" technology that Lamarr helped to invent would galvanize the digital communications boom, forming the technical backbone that makes cellular phones, fax machines and other wireless operations possible. snip

31. PvP? Dude, nothing is too obscure or esoteric for the DU Lounge and nerdery.

We once had a discussion thread on the correlation of high-IQs to low purity-test scores among Loungers. Given that was years ago, but it was hilarious. Someone used to post a daily 5-question Proust Questionnaire. (If I could think of 5 good questions a day, I'd restart it.) I used to quote "Sinfest" and people got the references. We have followers of Bokononism, Flying Spaghetti Monster and Church of the Latter-Day Dude (Dudists).

This was and will-be-again the most-interesting place on the internet.
