Triangle man Pythagoras did not like fava beans. Actually he hated them with all his life. His disciples were forbidden to eat, touch and even look at them. This repugnance cost him dearly.
When a murderous bunch were at his heels, he interrupted their stampede in front of a bean field. Rather than crossing it, he halted them. His persecutors, a trifle surprised, killed him. A very likely motivation for his immense aversion came from the fact that he discovered ‘favism’ some years ago. Out of protest, beans still refuse to grow, right-angled.
