He had a bad day!

Turns out, before Daniel Powter, there was…Herbert Spencer!? Over at Acephalous, Spencer scholar Scott Eric Kaufman has convincingly documented the importance of his research subject with evidence straight from the ‘paper of record’: “Herbert Spencer, who has been ill for some time, passed a bad day today.” As SEK says, “He was the Britney Spears of his time! Except instead of being a useless pop singer, he was an Intellectual Titan!” Read the whole story here. George Eliot enthusiasts may feel little sympathy for the man, who gave our heroine many bad days by refusing to love her (in his own words, “the lack of physical attraction was fatal”).
