Sir Isaac Newton... For shame!
I've been reading this book called "An Underground Education" by Richard Zacks. It's very nifty!

Here's one of the things I learned:

"Sir Isaac Newton's famous humble-pie quote 'If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants' was actually written to a dwarf scientist named Robert Hooke and clearly meant as an insult"

Go Mr. Newton! Er, either that, or you're a complete arrogant ass...
Purr for me
