Ludwig Wittgenstein is one of the most brillant philosophers so I think that cat gets a "thumbs up" for the coincidence of it all!!

Btw, I'm taking the nightbus tonight and I'll be back in Ptown tomorrow morning. Let's celebrate Saint Patty's Day laddie! ;-D

No no no.

The philosopher was the son of a wealthy jewish Entrepreneur from Vienna, whereas Sayn-Wittgenstein is the name of a large German Princely family. Karl-heinz, however, is what I would like to call an impostor. He was adopted a few years ago; hence, not a real Prince (or "Frst"). He also boasts frequent brushes with the law, unlike ANY member of the "real" Wittgenstein family.
