Who is the odd one out?

Louis Althusser

William S Burroughs

Bertrand Russell

 Henry VIII

Answer: Bertrand Russell only tried to murder his wife…  (General memo: stop with the murdering, people.)


  1. But Neil Entwistle DID kill his wife (and their son).

  2. Though fundametally irredeemable misogynists they all were, it’s a shame that Russell never had such a moment of lucidity as this:

    Kerouac (editing Naked Lunch): “Bill, what is all this stuff about young naked boys being hanged in limestone caves?”
    Burroughs: “No idea. I know I’m some kind of interplanetary agent but I don’t think my signals are decoding properly.”
