The plot of the American television series “Scorpion” was taken as a real story of a man from Ireland named Walter O’Brien. Currently, he is a businessman of his own IT company. O’Brien is known for his curious confessions about himself, which is constantly rumored, and journalists are always trying to get to the bottom of the truth.
