I have heard of Ernest Hemmingway (the writer) and Ernest Rutherford (the physicist). Ernest Hemmingway wrote some great novels. Here is a picture of him:
He was born in 1899 and passed away in 1961 at the age of 61. He died in the year I graduated from high school. Do you see a pattern here? He Passed at in 1961, at age 61 and I graduated in '61. No, I am not worried, since it has been many years since I was 61.
Not only was he a famous writer, but he was quite the big game hunter. He loved hunting in Africa. But his life was cut short by a terrible disease called hemochromatosis which caused him deep depression and severe pain. Although he shot himself, it was the disease that actually caused his early death.
There was another Ernest that had a hand in changing the world for ever. This was Ernest Rutherford. He was a New Zealand physicist who came to be known as the father of nuclear physics. Both of these Ernests changed the world, one in literature and the other paved the road to advances in medicine and, I hate to say, warfare. Here is a picture of Rutherford:
He was a New Zealand physicist who came to be known as the father of nuclear physics. Now, you can think of these two guys when someone says "in ernest". You all have a great evening, you hear?
