Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

Continuing my fascination with celebrities whose lives are intertwined:
[Uma] Thurman was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Her mother, Nena von Schlebrügge (b. 1941), was a Swedish fashion model, who was briefly married in 1964 to LSD guru Timothy Leary after the two were introduced by Salvador Dalí. She married Uma's father, Robert Thurman, in 1967.If you're old enough, you'll remember that the scare story about LSD was that it caused chromosome damage and all your kids would be horrifying freaks. Let's speculate that someone married to Tim Leary in 1964, even for a few months, probably dropped acid.
Freaky nose, huh?
UPDATE: Coincidentally, Family Guy had an opposing viewpoint last night.
