I replied: Don't you think it's egocentric to name everything after yourself? He said: well, to be fair they both worked hard for their degrees!
I have a discussion/question pertaining to Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit's nationality. It seems he was born in the Free City of Danzig in 1686, and that it was part of Prussia and he is therefore claimed by Germans as a German scientist? What is the history of the Free City of Danzig, what happened (in a nutshell) with Prussia, and what nationality was this guy really? I've seen him mentioned as "German," "Dutch-German-Polish" and "Dutch, Polish–Lithuanian, Polish, German." Thanks so much for helping me wrap my head around this topic!
Additional info: I chose not to post this in AskHistorians because I would like a layperson or ELI5 type answer/explanation.
I initially read about Fahrenheit in a German-language article that said he was German. Cannot seem to locate it now, however...

Celsius and Fahrenheit meet at -40, but did Anders Celsius and Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit ever meet? I'm curious to learn if the two engaged in some form of debate around the merits of the two systems, in person or through correspondence.
Wenyen Gabriel was a player sorely needed by the Lakers. Lakers are just way too old and need to gamble on younger players.
Wenyen in 2019-2020 was an energy player at PF/C where he can compete on the boards and can get vertical for dunks. No one on the Lakers right now can even catch lobs consistently. They are either too old or too short.
Now, I'm not sure what happened in 2020-2021, but it seems like Pelicans made him chuck-up 3s. He seems to have a quick trigger and can hit the shot decently.
Wenyen made 41% of his 3s on 32 attempts. Volume is way too low, but when he played minutes, he would chuck up those 3s!
Here's another clip last year with 4 offensive rebounds and high motor. Lakers have no player like him right now.
Another great hustle game with [3 off... keep reading on reddit ➡
A co-worker recommended the Gabriel Allon series to me, so I borrowed "The English Spy" from the library. I'm on page 100, and the book seems to be one cliché after another--handsome superspy with super model wife, warm-hearted mob chieftain, cold-blooded terrorist, elite ex-military operator...Just a cookie cutter book with nothing original. Have the books in the Gabriel Allon series been critically well received? Am I missing something? I'll keep reading, but so far I am not seeing what makes Daniel Silva a #1 NYT bestselling author.
