Archimedes Special Edition

So, Michael Berman and I got to talking about Archimedes on Twitter today ... and then Michael opined: Archimedes — Leveraging Disruption Since 250 B.C.E.

I figured that was worthy of a meme!

Then I used Cheezburger and GIMP to make an animated gif:

Here are the different language frames:

Δός μοι πᾷ στῶ καὶ τὰν γᾶν κινήσω.

Da mihi ubi consistam terramque movebo.

Give me a place to stand, and I will move the whole world.
