I suppose it is about time to update that code. Hollywood directors overuse the f* word in movies in modern days.

Along with Dame Agatha Christie, Conan Doyne is one of my favorite writers and is one of the world's best ever.

In Portuguese there is the word "edil" that springs from "Aediles", meaning "city councelor" or even "mayor" in present time.

Quotes by others about Jean-Bernard-Léon Foucault (1)

The velocity of light is one of the most important of the fundamental constants of Nature. Its measurement by Foucault and Fizeau gave as the result a speed greater in air than in water, thus deciding in favor of the undulatory and against the corpuscular theory. Again, the comparison of the electrostatic and the electromagnetic units gives as an experimental result a value remarkably close to the velocity of light–a result which justified Maxwell in concluding that light is the propagation of an electromagnetic disturbance. Finally, the principle of relativity gives the velocity of light a still greater importance, since one of its fundamental postulates is the constancy of this velocity under all possible conditions.
