Wikipedia does it better

A few months ago I wrote an award-winning post called Eponymity in Physics, where I listed as many different 'types of things' you could have named in your honor as I could think of. It appears that the wikipedia has something like this itself called "Scientific Phenomena named after People." They've got a few that I missed (but only because they're stupid), like 'index,' 'reaction,' and 'fusor.' Hmm, I don't know how I missed those.
