Whack jobs

Jenn and I just watched a movie called "Proof". It was about a math genius and his daughter, who also turns out to be a math genius. The old man ends up going schiziod and nutso, and that got me thinking. Can you think of any real geniuses that haven't had something wrong physically or mentally? Just off the top of my head I am thinking about people like Beethoven (deaf) Stephen Hawking (parkinsons) the guy from the movie was Robert Llywellyn (whacked). The movie "A Beautiful Mind" was about another math genius called John Nash and his elevator didn't go all the way to the top. It's almost as if these people were crippled by their own genius, like their brains were so advanced in certain areas that they couldn't funtion in some of the most basic ones.
