In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.

The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.

Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.

Whoa…

Steve Jobs had already de-bunked this. He said it was not an homage nor intentional.

I do LOVE these news, but I wish they had announced it after the Invictus Games because now (even tho it’s not their fault) all the attention will not be on the games

They’re not trying to pull attention away from the Invictus Games.

The reason they announced it when they did is because Kate is sick, like when she was with George and had to be put in hospital, and had an engagement today. She’s not well enough to attend, obviously, and announced the pregnancy and her sickness because she’s not going. She just couldn’t show up without any word.

I agree. Her not showing up without a word would be more dramatic.


So is Kate still going to Malta or… 

It’s something that her people are going to take on a day to day basis. It seems that she’s suffering from extreme morning sickness again (HG) so engagements will be limited. Hopefully further into the pregnancy we’ll see her more. :)

When is Kate due? Will it be a boy or a girl? What are you hoping for?

It seems like late April/early May. It’s far too soon to tell but I’m just hoping for a healthy baby. :)

AND BEFORE ANYONE STARTS

THEY HAD TO ANNOUNCE TODAY BECAUSE CATHERINE CAN’T ATTEND TODAY’S EVENT DUE TO HG

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OVERSHADOWING HARRY OR THE INVICTUS GAMES

Agreed. If she wasn’t there, everyone would be like, “WHERE’S CATHERINE?!” and probably distract from Harry’s good work. It’s best that they announced it now to kind of get it out of the way. As excited as I am, today should be Harry’s day. A crap ton of planning went into this. He seems like a good man.
