    Isaac Newton.

    In an experiment, to prove that color perception is caused by pressure on the eye, Newton slid a darning needle around the side of his eye until he could poke at its rear side, dispassionately noting “white, dark & colored circles” so long as he kept stirring with “ye bodkin.”

    Isaac Newton, on jamming long objects into his eye just to see what would happen.

    Quoting a blog post on this image:

    We all celebrate Newton as a genius, but if you dig a little deeper you’ll find that he was also the height of 17th century whatthefuckery.

    Isaac Newton – inquisitive enough to stick needles into his own eye. No wonder he is a great scientist.
