FDR is correct!

Today’s question: Looking through his telescope in 1610, Galileo was the first person to see the moons of what planet?

Uranus, let's get a full spread here, people
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

I'm not getting this joke. Either that or I'm just not finding it funny. I honestly don't know which.

The way I phrased it could be misconstrued as sexual, especially in reference to a soundalike to Uranus.

The innuendo was unintentional, though, so it wasn't really a joke. Shini's just dirty-minded.

Jupiter. And the moons he saw, I think were... Callisto, Io, Europa, and... Gan.. Ganymede? I remember there's four moons called the Galilean moons. They're the largest ones. I just dont remember all of Zeus's affairs they were named after.


.... I really like astronomy. And mythology.
