All better now

You know how much smarter we are than those dummies of days gone past? You can store the whole works of a supposed big shot like Issac Newton in under a gigabyte (for example).

And 500 years from now, nobody will know nothing about Newton, but Woody will be on the tip of their tongues. As we say in the mother language.

Sterile zone created around Nobel Peacewinner

British authorities agreed to the creation of a “sterile zone” around Panurge with a series of road closures in central London and a security cordon keeping the public away from his cavalcade.
