I don’t know if I was more shocked to hear they found Galileo’s finger, or to learn that someone had the finger at all! Turns out there are three fingers floating around and some vertabrae.

Next thing you know, someone will declare them ‘holy’ (not the Catholic church) and we’ll end up with a new religion…or worse yet, a new Galileo.
