Fun with Fischer

Everyone's favorite chess champion/Howard Hughes wannabe is at it again, this time getting tossed into solitary for... well, for being Bobby Fischer:

[Fischer's fiancee, Miyoko] Watai said Fischer became involved in a dispute with guards when he asked for an additional boiled egg at breakfast. The dispute escalated to a scuffle, leading Fischer to be placed in solitary confinement.

Normally I'd be incensed at such juvenile behavior from someone old enough to be my dad, but Fischer is just so ludicrous I can't work up the energy. I really think we need people like him, because they remind us of just how loony smart people can get.
