Seriously, we did not know Bucky was a babe.

Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller  (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983) was an American inventor, systems theorist, designer, author, engineer, architect, and humanist.  Fuller was an enigmatic genius best known for his innovations with geometric architecture such as the geodesic dome, as well as his pioneering work with sustainable systems.  In addition to being dashingly handsome, “Bucky” was also a badass (having been expelled from Harvard University for his hard partying) and a genius, who meticulously documented his life over 80 years in the world’s longest autobiography, The Dymaxion Chronofile, a paper record over 80 meters thick where Fuller notated his life every 15 minutes!  Fuller’s complex intellect fascinated and baffled many of his contemporaries.  His many quirks, coupled with his brilliant designs made him a guru among alternative communities seeking to create sustainable systems.  
Fuller received numerous honorary degrees, was granted 28 US Patents, and in 1983 shortly before his death was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom (the nation’s highest civilian honor) by President Ronald Reagan.  He died of a heart attack at the age of 87 and is buried in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    But why did he document every 15 minutes of his life? That’s like a middle school girl on Facebook.
