Today I got my first (temporary) crown. It’s been so long since I’ve had any type of filling or anesthesia for dental stuff that I pretty much freaked out. I was so nervous, so anxious. My dentist rocks though, and I listened to Frank Sinatra and it was all over pretty quickly.
Last night we watched the latest Cosmos episode. My current question: where are all the geniuses today? Why was Edmond Halley able to map the southern stars, identify the trade winds, help figure out the laws of planetary motion, calculate the orbit of Halley’s comet, build the diving bell, create a magnetic compass, and research common ages of death? Why could this one man accomplish so much? And he somehow worked with Isaac Newton? Why so many amazing minds at one time? Why not now? I want to be curiouser and curiouser.♥
