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.

Carmack doesn't use a keyboard, he just creates brainwave patterns that resonant with the CPU to make the appropriate input signals.

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.

John Carmack puked when Gears of War came out. The only thing he could say after that was, "There are no 'gears' in war. Just a bunch of guns and aliens in a small indoor scene." Aparently, he also believes that even though the game has quaked most of the gaming community, it's destined to an early doom because of the extensive ammount of outdoor scenes.
