Follow the white wabbit

A day of symmetry! Galileo died on this day in 1642. Apparently there's a note written in one of his books after his big abjuration muttering “The Bible shows the way to go to heaven, not the way the heavens go”. Also on this day - in 1941 - William Randolph Hearst banned ads for Citizen Kane from appearing in his newspapers.

And while we're talking about massive powers trying to control representations of reality, take the red pill...
