Very, very smart people are known to have quirks and eccentricities, in case you were unaware, and Godel was no exception. Later in his life he became exceedingly paranoid, and specifically became afraid that people were trying to poison him. As such, he refused to eat food prepared by anyone other than his wifeâ€”ever. With no exceptions. You may see where this is going.
When Godelâ€™s wife became ill and was hospitalized for six months, he literally wasted away. He died on January 14, 1978, weighing all of 65 pounds; the death certificate listed the cause of death as, â€œmalnutrition and inanition caused by personality disturbanceâ€, which is kind of a more formal way to say that he died of being a stubborn bastard. -- http://listverse.com/Linkback: https://tubagbohol.mikeligalig.com/index.php?topic=71741.0
