Pierre: hey do you want to do it on that radioactive lab table over there
Marie: that is probably not a good idea as you already can’t get it up
today in 1902 Marie and Pierre Curie isolated radium from pitchblende. you’re probably all “whatevs” about this, but trust me, this accomplishment was badass. in fact, it was so badass that it earned the Curies and A. Henri Bacquerel the Nobel Prize the following year, the first time any person with lady parts had received the honor. in 1911 M-Curs would also become the first person with either lady or dude parts to receive more than one Nobel Prize.
now I bet you’re all like, damn, this woman was badass just like Cups said. now you can all take your newfound knowledge to the streets since France and Poland have declared 2011 The Year of Marie Motherfucking Curie, that phrase exactly. get your chemical separation on, people.
