Happy 101st Birthday to Hedy Lamar

The woman who proved that you can really have it all:

- Beauty (she was called the "most beautiful woman in Europe")
- Movie Career with a Star on the Hollywood walk of fame
- Developed an improved traffic stoplight
- Patents for spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to thwart the Nazis that make our modern communications possible U.S. Patent 2,292,387 (but the US Navy did not use it until the patent had expired).
