Revolutions, revolutions, revolutions.  Do you want to know the
etymology of that word?  In 1543, at the end of his life, Nicolaus
Copernicus published "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium": "On the
Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres".  The book was revolutionary.  It
literally gave new meaning to the word.

See?  In the end, everything comes back to science.  I always knew I was
cool.
