The most important thing to do on a holiday is to maim oneself for life. So that’s what I did.
“Eppur si muove” — “And yet it moves” Words puportedly said by the great Galileo after being forced to recant his theory of heliocentrism by the inquisition. Okay, sure … there’s no actual proof these words came out of his mouth, but it’s the sentiment that matters:
The truth is the truth. You can cover it up with bullshit religious ideas, dumbass textbooks touting ridiculous unproven crap like (un)intelligent design, you can order torture and inquisitions, force people to recant, you can turn a country into The Handmaid’s Tale. That doesn’t make your words the truth. The earth moves (and many other things also happen) whether you believe it or not.
And, well … as a person who writes, draws, makes music, beads, crafts, bakes, sews and so on — I don’t think the second tattoo really needs an explanation. It was either that or “REMEMBER TO BREATHE!”
