Peter Pullen.

He's the head coach of the Dayton Dunbar high school basketball team in Ohio.

Why in the name of all that's holy would a parent place that sort of name on their child? LOL. I bet he had to beat up lots of other kids growing up, so maybe he did at least learn toughness through that moniker, not unlike the "Sue" character in Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue".

And in this poor fella's case, even last name first, first name last would not provide much relief, because Peter Pullen would then become Pullen Peter. See? There's just no way to win!

My poor male cousin was given the name "Kamia" (suppossedly Native American) by his hippie parents.

Their daughter named her child "Lotus Blossom."

She lives in Berkeley, is unmarried and lived in a genuine Teepee in a campground when she had the kid.

I bet people think he is egotistical when filling out forms that require last name first.

I believe that John Crapper developed/invented the flush toilet, I'd always thought it was an urban legend until I was standing in front of a porcelain urninal in an old building and looked down at the logo... It was a genuine "Crapper"

It is a myth Thomas Crapper did not invent the flush toilet.


Myth: Thomas Crapper invented the toilet.

Fact: No one in the know about Thomas Crapper would ever make this statement. In his research, Grabowski has created a detailed history of Crapper's business life. The man holds nine patents, four for improvements to drains, three for water closets, one for manhole covers and the last for pipe joints. Every patent application for plumbing related products filed by Crapper made it through the process, and actual patents were granted.

The most famous product attributed to Thomas Crapper wasn't invented by him at all. The "Silent Valveless Water Waste Preventer" (No. 814) was a symphonic discharge system that allowed a toilet to flush effectively when the cistern was only half full. British Patent 4990 for 1898 was issued to a Mr. Albert Giblin for this product.

There are a couple of theories on how Thomas Crapper came to be associated with this device. First, is that Giblin worked for Crapper as an employee and authorized his use of the product. The second, and more likely scenario, says Grabowski, is that Crapper bought the patent rights from Giblin and marketed the device himself
