I learned about this tumblr today--like everyone--when I found out that "Waiting for Godot" playwright Sameul Beckett used to drive Andre the Giant to school. (Really.) But that's only one of the gems in "Historical Meet-Ups." Like, did you know Lou Gehrig was on Rocky Graziano's parole board? Or that Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman kissed? Great stuff!
My favorite would have to be Wavy Gravy and Albert Einstein. I have two posters of Einstein in my room, not because I'm into science (which I'm not) but because he was a visionary, and he proved that "school smarts" didn't meet you were smart or not, it just dictated what you were most interested in.
