Franz Liszt Musical innovator who was both a benefactor and inspiration to many late 19th century composers
Frederic Chopin Celebrated pianist, whose music inspired both romanticism and nationalism; arguably the most famous composer of nocturnes
Friedrich Nietzsche Philosopher whose theory of conflicting wills, the super man, etc. has inspired later philosophers, but also inspired Fascism and Nazism.
Fritz Haber "Father of Chemical Warfare" for developing the process of it.
Fritz Lang Filmmaker who created groundbreaking films that earned him the nickname "Master of Darkness"
Galileo The "Father of Modern Science" for his laws of motion and improvements on observational astronomy; went against traditional and religious thought that the Universe was perfect by showing that celestial objects were imperfect spheres and they moved in imperfect circles.
Gavrilo Princip Assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, which may have been the leading initiator of World War I
Genghis Khan First Great Khan and Emperor of the Mongol Empire, arguably the largest Empire in human history, although the empire was split after his death; conquered China and committed genocide, altering the genetics of East and Central Asia.
George Devol Created the first industrial robot
George F Handel One of the greatest baroque composers. His music is still played at coronations, Olympic events, weddings, film scores, etc., to this day.

So I'm going to, this time, specifically explain why I left off Devol, because he seems to be a popular choice.  Yes, industry is being increasingly automated, but if you think about it, we've been using machines more and more back since the industrial revolution started in the textile industry, or since the first water wheel for milling.  To properly asses Devol we need to have a long, hard conversation about just what a robot is, and if it's distinctly different than previous forms of tools.  The argument can go either way, I think, so on the balance I didn't include.

Anywho, yall should play Detriot Become Human.

I think I'll just start posting the new ones anytime we get to 15 or when it is the next day. I think hoping for 19 or 20 each time is a little optimistic. 

Sorry, I’ve been a day or so behind on some of these, but I will continue to get caught up as quickly as possible.   After 3 visits to 2 specialists last week, I get to have emergency surgery in a few hours.   Nothing serious, but necessary to alleviate the major debilitating pain I was experiencing.   I’ll continue to do my ranks while recovering

I hope you feel better soon!
