Democritus, The Laughing Philosopher
We have an assignment in math class for Democritus.
Hello, there. My name is Democritus. I am called "The Laughing Philosopher". I'm going to tell you my life's story today. :D
I created the theory of the Atomic Theory of The Universe. I was a scientist and a mathematician. *Heh, heh* I guess you could call me "The Father Of Modern Science" like everyone else, if you want :D
I lived here in Greece. It is a very mountain-y place. It is very gorgeous even still to this day. :D
I traveled with my father far and wide. I was VERY rich.
Hi! I'm Democritus's dad. I'm very rich, but I'm very old.
When my father died I inherited all his riches. I was to now travel the world by myself.
I traveled the world for wisdom and devoted my inheritence to traveling, amounting to 100 talents.*
*Talents as in a former weight and unit of currency, used especially by the ancient Greeks and Romans.
