Probably the same "suicide" cause and effect that struck Dr David Kelly when his evidence on WMD in iraq could have prevented a costly war in the wrong country.
As for Alan Turing... he got "Queer bashed", it took another 30 years to recognise that men with a mathematical bent tend to be bent as a result of the same grid that makes them exceptional mathematicians. Married mathematical geniuses are a rarity even now.
No worries for me however, I do not have a "grid" and can do math operations in binary on paper faster than decimal! My math is a fact of remembering results by long example, I do however happen to be an exceptionally good scientist for which math is an add on.
*NOTE* The Dr Kelly Debacle
Still no obvious WMD in Iraq, and A Qaeda was in Pakistan @ the time.
Pakistan now recognised as supporter of Taliban & only squabbles there being whom should run the failed state of Pakistan. Thus far it appears that the army is attempting another coup d'etat via the judiciary & the taliban are shooting them in
the back to preserve poppy farming land up north.
Pakistani-US relations now descending to true level & time of start of war in Iraq.
Note major crustal relaxation earthquake epicentre likely due in Pakistani side of Kashmir as epicentre. Most of locals going gaga as result which is not helping things.
Have a nice day: Ag
