As I’m sure you may recall…
Archimedes was an Ancient Greek…
Historically, he was charged with inventing rudimentary physics while sitting in his bath one day. He was also the man who at some point in time, amid other ‘Eureka!!’ moments, just happened to say:
“Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I will move the earth”.
Thus anticipating the wishes of the Ayatollah Khomeini by a good 2,500 years.
Despite all that… I think Archimedes’ greatest achievement was to make up a quote (see above), so rock solid that it could travel intact down through a hundred and fifty generations.
Straight from the fateful sacking of the city of Syracuse, right into the ink-stained hands of the typesetters of the Elementary School Edition of ‘Physics Can Be Fun’.
Well wouldn’t it be totally awesome if you could make my words of wit and wisdom half as popular?
Who knows, maybe one day they might be. But first you have to read them…
