Seven Seals: Took out this:
  • Marie Curie's sister took her to a doctor after she passed out in her lab. The only thing wrong with Marie is that she hadn't eaten anything substantial for a few days.
    • before or after she painted the walls with uranium?

OK, first, no she didn't faint from radiation sickness, obvious as that joke may be. Second, I read a biography (don't have publication details) were it said that Curie was basically too poor to afford proper nutrition, and she spent what little money she had on supplies instead. Undervaluing food in favor of your research could still be considered an example of the trope, though it's not quite the same thing as forgetting — the thing is that I have no idea what's true and what's not. If someone else does...
