Imagine being Antonie van Leeuwenhoek and discovering we’re surrounded by a secret world microscopic creatures. Disgusting


"Are you alright, Antonie?"

"Get the fuck away from me, you bastards."

I'm just reading about him. Apparently he was delighted! Kept looking everywhere to see more of these small dancing things

"The motion of most of these animalcules in the water was so swift, and so various upwards, downwards and round about that 'twas wonderful to see." Leeuwenhoek, 1674
