    Why is Walter Lines notable?

    (names in parens are those who provided the guess)
    1. He was British (train)
    2. He was the author of some great book (Nightstalkers)
    3. He was the chief architect behind the first aquaducts in London (BigBlue)
    4. He was the French biologist who was the first to identify the bacteria that causes diptheria (TomB)
    5. He was a movie director best known for his film, "Singing in the Rain" (EricBess)
    6. He was an English schoolboy who invented the scooter (correct answer)
    7. He was renowned for his work in the field of mathematics, specifically linear mathematics. In fact, Walter Lines is not his original name but rather a nickname given to him by his colleagues. The name printed on his birth certificate is Walter Young. (Zhaneel)
    8. He was the original editor of National Geographic. (Apollo)
    9. He was the co-creater of Coleco with Telstar Arcade in 1976. (sageridder)

      I hope I didn't confuse anyone by posting the list in the original thread since not everyone who provided an initial guess did a final guess. Maybe I'll go back to making it a separate thread...

      sageridder got the correct answer but Apollo was a big winner in that two people guessed his.

      EricBess guessed 3.
      Apollo guessed 4.
      sageridder guessed 6.
      train guessed 7.
      BigBlue and Zhaneel guessed 8.
      TomB guessed 9.
