This is a question Claims to Fame

Rob writes, "My photoshop claim to fame: the way the crop tool greys out the rest of the image? That was my idea. I sent it to the Abobe features request thing back in ooh probably about 1998. (After spending a frustrating day cropping images for a dull
website, and wishing the tool worked better.)"

What crappy claims to fame can you make?

I've got oodles of family based claims to fame, lets see.
-My great great uncle was prime minister of germany, won a nobel peace prize for getting germany out of the depression, then he lost the job in the next election to hitler, who used my great great uncle's jewishnes against him in his campaign.
-Another great uncle of mine was Paul Erlich, who invented the basics of chemotherapy back in the late 19th century
-I'm a direct decendant of king david who killed goliath
-My grandparents on my dads side were helped out of germany by schindler out of Schindler's List.
-My grandad, Leopold Samson (who i get my name from) invented putting chloring in swimming pools.
-My great grandad invented Ultrasound.
-My great uncle invented some fancy gynacological technique that won him a nobel prize.
-If my great great grandad had been the firstborn son instead of the second, i would be a count.

Thats all i can think of for now, oh, and once i won the egg toss at Banstead fete and got in the local paper.
