Galileo

We went to the Galileo Museum yesterday. Fascinating.

Two things jumped out.

It is such a temptation not to touch the exhibits as many of them cry out to be played with – actually, at the end of the tour, there is an interactive display. Something for the small child in all of us.

second, everyone has heard that the middle finger of Galileo’s right hand is on display (we marvelled at its length) . It seemed appropriate that it was the middle finger too: You think the sun revolves around the earth? Fuck you!
