The smartest man in the history of the human race never got laid, not even once.

Perhaps it was his punishment for inventing Calculus II.

I wonder sometimes if Isaac Newton’s inability to connect with his fellow human beings poisoned western science from the very beginning, if it inevitably led to the inevitable destruction of the earth by global warming, or the weaponization of the atom and the mass murder at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Conservatives like to tell me that “facts don’t care about your feelings.” Perhaps they should.
