Top 10 Mad Scientists of all Time!

From the "Becoming A Radiologist Technician" see an article that is bound to generate some interesting discussion. From the article:
  • Whether they stand for good or for ill, most people love watching mad scientists at work in literature, film, video games, and other mediums. Their appeal comes from the simultaneously impressive and frightening ability to push biology, engineering, physics, chemistry, psychology, and other fields of scientific inquiry to their very limits with an obsessive quality far beyond normalcy. Obviously, lists such as this are highly subjective, but many film aficionados agree that the following figures defined, perfected, or otherwise offered an interesting perspective on what makes a mad scientist.
Now I will list them, but you really should go to the original article for the discussion that accompanies each selection - check these out:
  • 1. Tie: Dr. Frankenstein/Dr. Frankenstein
    2. Doc Brown
    3. Dr. Moreau
    4. Dr. Strangelove
    5. Dr. Mabuse
    6. Dr. Seth Brundle
    7. Dr. Frank N Furter
    8. Dr. C.A. Rotwang
    9. Dr. Horrible
    10. Tie: The entire main cast of Real Genius/the titular protagonists of Ghostbusters

Oh my yes!!!! How could she have missed Dr. Lizardo! What a completely brilliant and bizarre movie! Buckaroo Bonzai and the best quote... No matter where you go...there you are! Did you know that Confucius is credited with the quote first? and you know..that makes sense when you think about it.
