They were all gonna be pissed and Artimetis knew it. But he didn’t care. He charged down the mountain. He had discovered that the earth was NOT the center of the universe and he could prove it.
He could prove Copernican theory of the universe against the dominant earth-centered Ptolemaic and Aristotelian theories. In his notebook were verified charts of celestial movements from his telescope.
At the bottom of the mountain was that bully Galileo. “Gimme your money Fartimetis.” “I don’t have any.” “Then I will hold this until you do.” “Hey!” And Galileo snatched the notebook from Artimetis’ hands.

Oh ya, reminder, more spacing between lines.

Not only is it easier to read, it makes it look bigger.

After all, there are women reading these things too.

Needs some minor polish there. Miss Grimsley would have me trussed in a gimp-suit and locked in detention for a month for starting a sentence with "And."

Don't let that happen to you!

Now in my limited education I remember that and then someone smarter than me explained that, that was old school and it is acceptable to begin a sentence with "And" as long as the word follows a period and starts with an upper case "A".

I did some reading up on that, and you correct. In modern informal writing you can get away with it.

I still say you are in grave danger of a visit from Miss. Grimsley though.

She tends to be old school.

And when I say "old school" I mean "age of the elder gods from the nether realms."

Clever story.. I didn't "hee hee" out loud like Tweedster, but I laughed in my mind. (LIMM?)
