John Carmack invented gravity, and to celebrate, he threw an apple at Issac Newton, smacking him right on the back of the head. It was a great shot.

In the early development of Doom 3, John Carmack was forced to fabricate and engineer the first Brain-to-AGP adapter for himself so he could run the Alpha in full graphics with a decent framerate.

Carmack isn't pleased with the fill-rate and poly counts in real life, so he is writing his own drivers.
