23 Real-Life Mad Scientists Deleted From Your History Books

Hey science is great, you know? It's given us lots of wonderful things like the human genome and peanut butter cups. But clearly, at some point, the pressure just gets to the great thinkers of the world. We feel you, scientists -- sometimes life pushes you to the snapping point, so you just kind of say "Screw it" and go rogue on the whole damn process.

That's why we teamed up with photo scientist AuntieMeme to create this tribute to some scientists who reached the point of zero fucks given. Because even crazy people deserve a shout out every now and again.
