"He's also the man you should give your vote if you want the Nobel Prize given to someone who picks and eats stuff from his feet during public lectures:


For god's sake. Everyone knows he picked something off his feet and ate it during that lecture. Everyone heard about it a year or two ago. Please, stop banging on and on about it.
"

Having a disgusting habit does not invalidate the man's ideas, efforts or passion.


Maybe, but it sure is funny! And his fanboys clearly get upset when anyone mentions it.
