post whore extraordinaire
Post? Don't you mean current? (don't ban me)
A young Polish student was touched by this current. As he read the final proof of his book, it was published when he died. It was the first salvo that launched the most impactful intellectual event in the history humankind. Guess who that is?
Is it going to be something boring and completely random?
Ugh, let's see Polish scientists that are male. Pierre Curie?
It is educational, so by definition, it is going to be boring.
And niet, on Pierre Curie.
And if you are talking about the person in question, no, it is not boring. It is dramatic and drama-filled.
Welp, I've run out of Polish scientists.
Uhh, Miguel Najdorf? Robert Lewandowski? Roman Polanski? These are the only other Polish people I know.
Don't focus on his nationality. Think about what would be considered the greatest intellectual event in human history that happened within the past thousand years.
The industrial revolution? Printing press? My birth?
The Industrial Revolution was more so about transforming the economy. The printing press was an invention.
Okay, go on then. I've never been this excited in my life.
The Scientific Revolution -- Nicolaus Copernicus.
Ugh, if he's so important then why is he dead? Thanks for wasting my life
He is actually immortal because of the legacy he left. According to tradition, Lao Tze thought that in order to be immortal, you had to write a book that will be remembered throughout the ages.
Is that what you're doing, spamming the forums to become immortal?
I don't buy that immortality shit, individuals just aren't that important in the grand scheme of things. In 100 years time, my future children will be close to dying, I'll be long dead and it would be like I never existed. Same with Copernicus except they'll only remember the name and what he did, they don't actually remember anything about his personality, no-one actually gives a shit about him he's just a trivial pursuit answer now and it's like he never existed either.
Point is people like to think they can live forever by doing actions that last forever but that's delusional and narcissistic (mother thinks this way, which is why I'm opinionated).
Oh, sorry. I didn't type that. An ant crawled over my keyboard and that's what came out on the screen. He must of pressed the "submit" button, somehow.
Pierre Curie was from France. His wife, Maria, was polish scientist. Actually, she was born in the Warsaw, where I live now.
Ps. Did I mention that my English is terrible and I probably sound like a primary school child?
Poland... France... same thing
Aw, I couldn't even tell that English isn't your first language. You sound fine.
