Of course, he was attacked by the scientific community, not the church. The other natural philosophers were the ones that lodged the complaints. Until he pissed them off theologically, he had the support of the church. And house arrest, well, gee, he got to stay in the medieval equivalent of a five-star hotel for the rest of his life. I'm sure everyone would like that kind of a sentence.

I agree. I have a Pebble, and with Bluetooth on and about 15-20 notifications a day, I get a solid week on a two hour charge. I use watchfaces that only update once a minute, and I could not be more happy with this device. With the vibration and the notifications on screen, I can deal with 90% of what I receive without ever pulling out my smartphone. The phone is always on mute, and I rarely miss anything important.

My question is, do these ACs PURPOSEFULLY misquote this song? By now, everyone should know that the last word in the first stanza is "confidant"; enough people have pointed it out. Or, is this just a 'bot with a fixed text file that is never updated?
