- Ada Lovelace
With Charles Babbage, helped create the first computer program, on a computer that didn’t actually exist. Together the two of them squandered the chance to progress technology 50 years* forward, and in actual fact kind of did nothing at all except to create a great alternate history scenario point of divergence. Possibly distracted by EastEnders. What a waste.
*number pulled out my ass.
- Hedy Lamarr
Together with Bob Hope, helped create radar and foil various nazi spy rings (source: some film I watched on netflix a while back).
- Umm… I think that’s pretty much all of them
