Looks like Alan Turing is Bank of England's new face of their 50 note. Turing was a brilliant man with a long list of accomplishments and breakthroughs, including but not limited to mathematics, theoretical computational sciences, and theoretical biology. He was also chemically castrated for being busted for engaging in consensual homosexual acts. What a way to celebrate a war hero. He ended his life via suicide in 1954 and was posthumously pardoned for his "crimes" in 2013 by Queen Elizabeth II. Focus: It seems like the only ones that get put on our money have a mixed life story of achievements and tragedy. Who would your pick be for the next face of $$? Especially if they are more obscure, tell us their story. Alt Focus: All about Alan Turing. I know a very basic summary of his life, but know that each of his achievements were individually great and took organized effort, dedication, intelligence, and intellectual curiosity.
