Gee... I wasn't aware that the Noble Prize was ever awarded for "kookiness"! If so, then Mr. Green has a pretty good shot at it! :wink:

Well, a noble prize he may manage to get. A Nobel would be somewhat more problematic as the Sweedish Academy of Sciences tends not to look at items such as those listed.

Maybe what he really needs is an Ig Nobel (http://www.improb.com/ig/ig-top.html) Prize. Unfortunately there's not as much money attached to it.

I think that Wayne might have confused the Nobel prize with the Hobble prize...awarded to those who strive to try to incorporate "junk science" into real science.

Naw...I'm thinking that Hoaxland would be winning that one every year.

Stan Lee might give him a No - Prize.

beskeptical's listing of Wayne's accomplishments boggles the mind. I especially liked swimming the length of Coney Island many times. Now, if he can swim the WIDTH even once....

Just a "few" comments...


piloted a nuclear attack submarine 800 feet under the Pacific ocean.

Piloted??


helped new technologies such as cellular telephones. personal computers, and compact discs to grow into major industries.

Does this mean that he bought a "lot" of each of these items??


while in college started a broadcasting station (WRPI) which is now the largest student activity.

Silly me, I thought that the "largest student activity" at any college was drinking. :)


bounced amateur radio signals off the Moon from the big dish at the Arecibo Observatory, PR.

Now why do I picture Wayne, just outside the gate at Aracibo, holding his transistor radio "up to" the Moon?? :)


visited the head-hunter longhouses in Sarawak.

Perhaps it wasn't a "headhunter"...but a "head-shrinker", and Wayne over-stayed his visited.


a reputation as a gourmet cook.

Yeah, but does he have a "good" reputation or a "bad" reputation...there is a difference.


raced my Porsche on the Nurburgring and Solitude race tracks in Germany.
both driven and navigated in many national SCCA car rallies.

But he must not have won a single race or I'm sure he would mentioned it. :)


Now the following I find most interesting...


tried marijuana in 1948 to see what it was like.
tried LSD in 1960 to see what that was like.
drunk with shipmates on liberty while in the Navy. Have seldom drunk since.

So we know that he has "seldom drunk since", yet he makes no mention of not continuing to use Marajuana and LSD. So one must assume (yes, I must) that Wayne has been a hibitual user since the dates indicated...that would explain a lot.


know the real dope on Amelia Earhart's last trip.

Does this mean that he sold dope to Earhart's navigator, and that's why she became lost??


been convinced that NASA had to have faked all of the moon landings.

Why does this not surprise me?


been convinced that with proper nutrition and avoiding poisons we can dependably live to over 100.

...As convinced as he is that the Moon landings were faked?


a Hubbard Dianetic Auditor certificate and has processed over 100 patients, with some remarkable successes.

No comment...cause I can't stop laughing. :lol:


investigated crop circles and a UFO hovering over a house in nearby Francistown NH.

Same as above. :lol:

It's no wonder that Wayne "thinks" that he deserves a Nobel Prize. He certainly "seems" to have an over-inflated sense of self-worth.


Actually, I shouldn't be making fun of the man, he is, after all, in his 80's...(and his "personal brand" of woowooism won't be around much longer, unless he lives to be 100 :))...but sometimes I just can't help myself. :) Apologies to anyone who might have been offended.

From what I understand about Scientology, any auditing is a bad thing. [-X

I knew there was a reason I hated him. Spectrums Rule! ;)

Admittedly I'm failing to name even one US manufacturer of speakers, as most of the best ones are European, with the noble exception of Canada's Paradigm, but who is he talking about?


performed in The Mikado and Pirates of Penzance in high school

Actually, I did the same, in our equivalent of Grade School. Strangely enough, this fact doesn't feature on my CV, however.


a Ph.D. in Entrepreneurial Science.

The who with the what how?


tried marijuana in 1948 to see what it was like.
tried LSD in 1960 to see what that was like.
drunk with shipmates on liberty while in the Navy.

Ignored peer pressure. Yup, looks like it.


driven from Brooklyn NY to Peterborough NH (250 miles), averaging 100 mph one night - including a gas stop.

And? Having previously mentioned his prowess as a Porsche driver, this is pretty darn slow, surely, unless we're merely meant to marvel at his ability to break the law in dangerous and stupid ways.


been convinced that with proper nutrition and avoiding poisons we can dependably live to over 100.

Mind you, I've been convinced that with the wrong application of the loud pedal, a Porsche driver can make all that dieting a complete waste of time.

I knew there was a reason I hated him. Spectrums Rule! ;)


I wonder what he means by that? Both "Run" and "Ahoy" started at the same time (January 1984) and "Compute!" was putting out a Commodore "Gazette" issue in 1983, so I'm not sure if you can call "Run" the first. Wayne-o isn't listed as editor-in-chief, technical editor, or consulting editor. I'm sure if he owned IDGE Communications (the publisher) that would have been mentioned in big, screaming letters. So, how exactly did he "start" it? Maybe we can propose him for an Ig-Noble Award.... :lol:
