An Accomplished Instigator

ricktimus:

Neil deGrasse Tyson is not impressed with all your sexism.

Edit: This post made it to the Science tag! As a science aficionado, this of course makes me happy.

So lots of people have reblogged pointing out the irony that I didn’t even include the names of the scientists in my original post. This is mostly true. I did include their names on my post, but that was only in the tag section, and even then it was for my own reference purposes. Had I known this was going to be reblogged like mad and added to an educational category I, would have at least included links to their respective biographies and stuff, instead of only just my glib commentary.*

But that is what the edit feature is for, I suppose. SO HERE ARE SOME LINKS:

AND ALSO:

* Not that I will ever regret writing glib commentary about Neil deGrasse Tyson throwing some serious shade at the past.

So many thank you’s, but the huge props need to go to:
Annie Cannon (Harvard Classification Scheme),
Henrietta Swan (Luminosity-Period relationship in Cepheid stars), and
Cecilia Payne (Composition of Stars).

DIEGO “EL CIGALA”: “BRAVO!”

———

and it says…

………..

Cigala says: “I say it again: no matter if I sing a Wawanco, a bolero or a Solea: I’m Flamenco.

——————————————————

Bravo!! let me clap at you

the way you hurted my feelings.

Ay, Bravo!! and i remind to you again

your false and infamous oath.

Everything, I felt in our intimacy

(that was so beautiful….)

Who could have said that will end in pain.

……….

I hate you so much

that I’m scared of myself

for the way I’m hating.

I desire…

that after your death

you won’t find a place to rest.

—————-

Hell ended to look like Heaven

comparing it with your soul

And hope god forgives me to desire

that not even at death 

you can be at peace.

The “Agatat” shelter in the Parâng Mountains, Romania. It’s a modest refuge, but it is free for every tired wayfarer. My friends and I have spent a joyful and quiet night this summer here.


Mmmmmm, more ideas for next Travel adventure :-)

Oh yeah… gotta get back to Italy with my now wine-drenched wilds-rooted sensibilities
