Happy 55th Birthday, Emma Thompson! (April 15, 1959)
THERE IS A MONTH UNTIL ANIMINNEAPOLIS AND i HAVE NOT STARTED MAKING MY WALTER GIRL DRESS.
I AM PANICKING AND I NEED TO FIND A SEAMSTRESS BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY I CAN GET THIS DONE IN TIME AND IT’S GOING TO COST WAY TOO MUCH AND I DON’T HAVE A SEWING MACHINE OR A PATTERN AND PANICCCCCCC
Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”
I know with Galileo, they listened to what he said and asked him to wait to publish his findings until they had corrected the teaching of the Church, but Galileo was like “Screw that, don’t hold me back!” and published his findings and it just completely ruined church/scientific relations… I’m not sure about Copernicus, but It may be a similar case.
