wow. just finished watching the imitation game with my mother and it emotionally destroyed me but it's so good
but oh my god poor alan turing. he did NOT deserve what he got. he was one of the people who helped break the Nazi Enigma machine and essentially helped win WWII for Britain. then, he invented the ancestor of today's computer, and his work is the reason i am able to type this right now. how was he thanked? by being convicted of "gross indecency" (back when being gay was a crime in Britain), chemically castrated, and eventually he committed suicide. alan turing is maybe one of the most important people of this century and he deserves to be learned about. seriously guys, go look him up!!!
