20 Weird Billionaires You Have To See To Believe

Creating A Race?: Robert Klark Graham


One thing’s for sure about billionaires—lots of them have eccentric interests, ideas, and investments. Robert Klark Graham is one wealthy man who had very different money-generating projects. An optometrist who made his money by inventing shatter-proof eyeglasses, Graham eventually devoted his time to a unique project called the Repository for Germinal Choice. He was essentially trying to create a sperm bank, only using donations from Nobel Prize winners. However, the project somewhat backfired, because most Nobel winners are elderly.

We suppose the idea behind that is a nice one. Having those who want to use the contents from the bank pay a pretty penny because having a child with the same DNA of a Nobel Prize winner would be very valuable. Maybe he should tap into another group of individuals like great current athletes.
