This is a 200-year-old farmhouse in the West Village - and it might be torn down to build condos

I walk by this place pretty much every day. It’s owned by the owner of Eclectic Props and they have a birdhouse on a post that’s an exact replica of their little house. I’m surprised it’s not historically protected like the old wood-timber two-story over here on Weehawken. Anyway, I’m pretty sure the neighborhood is going to rally heavily against this “development”.

Ah, another perigee super-moon tonight. Picked up a 10” diameter Dobsonian telescope today, might need to collimate it a touch though. 1200mm f4.72 prime with a 28mm eyepiece for a total of 42x magnification of the rear primary. Gonna max out magnification on the next shot, should be able to hit the theoretical 400x. #iphoneastronomy  (at Roessler Observatory -Brooklyn Annex)

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

YAAAAS NANCY DON’T BE NICE

DAYUUUUUM

Go off

This is why “these are just my beliefs” is not a valid defense in any debate I’m a part of. Yes, they’re your beliefs, but your fucked up beliefs don’t protect you from being a selfish, insensitive prick. Or just wrong - people believed the earth was flat until long after it was proven that it wasn’t & they were still completely wrong.

Lest one forget: there’s still people that tend to the belief that the earth is flat out of spite.
