Famous lazy men in history?

Recommended Posts

James Watson. The fact that he and Crick are credited with the structure of DNA is a result of him being both brilliant and in some sense lazy, or perhaps a grifter. Rosalind Franklin was just as brilliant, but careful patient and precise. She would have gotten there within a year. Watson wanted to make the big discovery. He was eager to skip the drudgery and make the intuitive leaps. He took other peoples work and jumped to the conclusion and won the prize.
