10 Famous Geniuses With Weird Secret Habits (10 person items)

"Tesla didn’t start out quirky. He just kind of became a little off-the-wall as he aged. Tesla was known to begin work each day at 3:00 AM and continue until 11:00 PM. These habits caused him to suffer a mental breakdown at age 25. He then pulled himself together and continued the same regimen well into old age, working as many as 38 years without a break in his rigorous work schedule.

There is no doubt that some plant food, such as oatmeal, is more economical than meat, and superior to it in regard to both mechanica"
