In 1616, the Minutes of the Inquisition recorded that following the judgment by the Farher Theologians against the opinions of the mathematician Galileoon the heliocentric model, Pope Paul V ordered Cardinal Bellarmine to summon Galileo and in person, warn him to abandon hisassertion that the earth moves around the sun.

Further, if Galileo should not acquiesce, he would be imprisoned. The next day, 26 Feb 1616,Galileo was ordered by Bellarmine “to give up altogether the false doctrine... and if you should refuse.. you should be imprisoned.” Given such a choice, Galileo made a renouncement, but he knew that would not change the real facts of the Earth's motion.«

A stingy old lawyer who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness was determined to prove wrong the saying, "You can't take it with you."
After much thought and consideration, the man finally figured out how to take at least some of his money with him when he died. He instructed his wife to go to the bank and withdraw enough money to fill two pillow cases.
He then directed her to take the bags of money to the attic and leave them directly above his bed. His plan: When he passed away, he would reach out and grab the bags on his way to heaven.
Several weeks after the funeral, the deceased lawyer's wife, up in the attic cleaning, came upon the two pillow cases stuffed with cash.
"Oh, that darned old fool," she exclaimed. "I knew he should have had me put the money in the basement."
