In honor of Newton’s Birthday festival, the following song should be sung to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”

On the tenth day of Newton,
My true love gave to me,
Ten drops of genius,
Nine silver co-oins,
Eight circling planets,
Seven shades of li-ight,
Six counterfeiters,
Cal-Cu-Lus!
Four telescopes,
Three Laws of Motion,
Two awful feuds,
And the discovery of gravity!

Hat tip Judson

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    How could someone “discover” gravity when it had been with us since the big bang?

    Less flippantly, we could use another one like him or Einstein: clean renewable or perpetual energy, that is the discovery we need now.
