Let’s play a little game.  I’m going to show you an image, and you say the first thing that comes into your head.  Here is the image.

Yeah, that’s what I was thinking, too.  This is Hermann Rorschach, the Freudian psychoanalyst responsible for the invention of the Rorschach inkblot test and a doctor I would visit even if he were out of my insurance network.  He lived from 1884 to 1922, and his joint interest in art and science lead him to develop the test for which he is famous.  I’m not sure why he isn’t famous for being incredibly good-looking, except that based on my personal (albeit modern) experience, this is about standard for the Swiss.
