I have no idea of the creator's source but there were SO many more important people. Their gender doesn't really matter. It's more about their mark on history.

Why is Hernan Cortes here but not Francisco Pizarro? Didn't they both did similar things with the Aztecs and the Incans at similar time phases? (In fact Francisco Pizarro conquered more land). Also I feel like Attila the Hun, Charlemagne, Asoka, Peter the Great(and some other people who modernised Russia) should be here.

Alexander Graham Bell invented the freaking telephone.

Guttenburg invented the printing press!

Picasso? Art doesn't rate, apparently.

Jobs and Gates changed the way mass communication and work is done.

Newton more influential than Jesus and Muhammad? I don't think so.

I laughed my way through throwing names wildly at this until I had to stop.

What was the source for this?
