    Otto Loewi

    Jew Score:



    June 3, 1873 – December 25, 1961

    "I don't want to go to sleep every night!", the five-year-old said.

    "You have to," we answered.

    "But when I sleep, I don't get to do anything!"

    "Not true," we said. "When you sleep, your brain is not just resting. It's not just recharging. It's working! Some of the best ideas come to people when they sleep. Dmitry Mendeleev came up with the Periodic Table. Paul McCartney, with "Yesterday" and "Yellow Submarine". Otto Loewi, a German Jew, even won a Nobel for something he discovered while he was sleeping! Heck, even some of our Jew or Not Jew profiles come to us when we are not awake! Not that we're comparing ourselves to Paul McCartney..."

    "Who is Paul McCartney?", asked the five-year-old.

    "Please, just go to sleep," we responded...

    Verdict: Jew.
