I've been thinking about my latest video and blag article on Twatson, and some of the, um, eloquent feedback, "leave Becky alone you [sic] rapist." and other pearls of erudition. Here's Carolyn Porco's discussion, in part, about Galileo. Note the difference to Twatson.
So, here's part two!
Unrelated note: Wangari Maathai's death is trending on Twitter still. Apparently, if you're an AIDS denialist, conspiracy theorist but plant a lot of trees, you can get a Nobel Peace Prize and people magically think you're a person of note. She's one smart cookie, noting that she knows HIV/AIDS didn't come from the moon (as a followup to her claim that HIV/AIDS was the white man's attempt to kill off the black man).
I suppose it's fitting she had Oprah and Tom Cruise as the masters of ceremony for her 2004 Nobel Peace Price party shindig thingy. Bleh.
