(1866-1946) British writer best known for his science fiction novels, such as "The Time Machine", "The Invisible Man", and "The War of the Worlds". The latter book inspired two movie renditions (1953, 2005), and Orson Welles' famed 1938 radio broadcast, which panicked many listeners, who thought they were listening to news reports of an actual Martian invasion of New Jersey. Wells, who studied with the great British biologist T.H. Huxley, was also an accomplished popularizer of science.
In "The War of the Worlds", H.G. Wells foresaw many of the horrors and technologies of the First World War, such as poison gas, flamethrowers, and armored vehicles.

A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.

The creator of the 1938 radio adaptation of Orsen Well's book War of the Worlds. The broadcast was incredibly realistic and scared more than a few people into commiting suicide as not to be taken by the invading aliens.
