This is a question Eccentrics

We all know someone who's a little bit strange - Mum's UFO abduction secret, or the mad Uncle who isn't allowed within 400 yards of Noel Edmonds.

Tell us about your family eccentrics, or just those you've met but don't think you're related to.

My uncle
believes that he came up with the idea for Windows. That while he was working in Currys in Bournmouth many years ago he came up with this concept and somehow this idea was stolen by those Microsoft scoundrels.

He consequently believes they are now on a mission to shut him up and cheat him out of claiming the billions he feels he is owed, and now carries around a backpack of papers with him constantly, and even when in his or any other family members home, he has to be able to see this at all times. No one can touch it and none of us have ever seen what is in it.
