|29 Which somehow don't seem quite as interesting as naked ladies.
CHAPTER 51 The best thing about all the new fields that opened up during the Renaissance was that it was so easy to be a Giant,
2 Because when you're the first to do something that hasn't been done for a long time,
3 Say, a thousand years,
4 There aren't too many acritics who are qualified to point out that you're not doing it right.
5 And so the Renaissance was suddenly bursting at the seams with new Giants,
6 Who were the first and best and brightest in all kinds of areas,
7 bAnd said as much to absolutely anybody who would sit still long enough to listen.
CHAPTER 61 For example, there was an ape named cGalileo,
2 dWho invented physics,
3 And therefore became a Giant of Science.
4 eGalileo dropped two rocks off the Leaning Tower of Pisa and discovered gravity,
5 Because both rocks fell all the way to the ground,
6 Without stopping anywhere along the way.
7 This was extremely significant because before Galileo discovered gravity, no one really knew what to expect when they dropped something.
8 Maybe it would fall,
9 Or maybe it would just hang around in the air,
||10 Or something.
12 fGalileo proceeded to tell absolutely anyone who would listen about what he had discovered,
13 Which got him into trouble,
14 Because one of the ones who listened was the gPope,
15 hWho didn't like it,
16 iAnd made Galileo take it back,
17 Which he did,
18 jCompletely and absolutely,
19 Except that he must have had his fingers crossed,
20 Or something,
21 kSince we still know about what he did with the two rocks,
22 Which helps explain why everyone knows that you can't suppress a really good idea,
23 lFor more than a thousand years or so.
24 And Galileo wasn't the only Giant of Science in the Renaissance either.
CHAPTER 71 For example, there was also a giant named mCopernicus,
2 nWho thought that the sun didn't revolve around the earth,
3 But the other way around,
4 oFor some reason.
5 This was very important because it helped pColumbus discover America,
7 And other things too.
CHAPTER 81 For instance, Copernicus's idea wound up making a Giant out of an ape named rKepler,
2 Who thought sPythagoras was right when he made up the idea that the universe was made up of a bunch of shapes,
