2007年版世界現存天才

Share this to LINE!(Mobile Only)

這是2007年的一篇報導,報導由英國每日電訊報選出當時尚存人世的百大天才,由4000名英國人請他們選出10名心目中最聰明的天才,然後加總得到的結果。當時我基於好奇就順便把這一百個人是誰都做了一些簡單的介紹。2012年回過頭來更新了一些資訊,不過大部份應該都是訃聞。底下每位人名最後的數字代表的是得票數字,這項調查還真的蠻英國研究的…因為認為Albert Hoffman是第一名也才27個人。

五年後(2007-2012)從原本100位變成93位,又再三年(2013-2015)後變成85位

R.I.P. 不知道未來又有誰會補上呢。
