• I don't know, but according to the internet: "According to archival footage, Brown was standing on his toilet seat on the evening of Nov. 5, 1955, attempting to hang a clock in his bathroom, when he slipped and slammed his head on the side of the sink. Upon regaining consciousness Brown reported having "a revelation, a picture, a picture in my head." A picture which he crudely scrawled down on a piece of paper and subsequently spent 30 years of his life and family fortune to build. That picture, of course, was the flux capacitor. And as every high school physics student knows, it's the device that makes time travel possible."
