So, this new bod is an Egyptian Pharaoh then?

Yes, yes, I'm already getting it.
Never heard of him
I have lived in Virginia for 20 yrs and read the papers daily (am also an Engineer), and I have never really heard of him. I vaguely remember the text book thing. But, nothing really has become of it. I have 3 kids in High School and none of this has benefited(sp?) their education. Maybe, it was for a special few.

At least the guy loves his iPhone and considers SJ to be a genius, instead of being another stupid MS-lemming...chalk one up for him!
