How to Be “Eccentric” Instead of Crazy

Beethoven thrashed pianos. Van Gough sliced off his ear. Einstein smoked cigarette nubs left on the street. Pythagoras believed beans are evil. Tesla avoided touching any round-shaped object [insert dirty joke here]. I bet you’re smiling or chuckling good-naturedly. That’s because I cited some of humanity’s most revered geniuses. We all do weird stuff, and worse […]
