One of the many things I find amusing is how people think I'm daft because of some of the things I tell them only for them to find the exact same information, 10 or 20 years later, on the news and in the headlines. I know I'm patting myself on the back, but fuck it. I was telling people about the dangers of an asteroid strike over 20 years ago and got labeled "crazy" by my knuckle-dragging co-workers - who weren't stupid people by any means. Ten years later it gets made into a movie. Well, I suppose I should at least be grateful that enough people saw the danger that they actually did something about it - that's more than I can say unfortunately.

It sounds eerily similar to the "Big Chill"
Our minds have to rationalize the rational world around us, yet there is still an infinite amount to ever be discovered.
This is why I always try to preach the idea of not being bound by artificial constructs like "logic." Reason and rationality - of course, but that's not always the same thing. Until you can see beyond the limits you impose on yourself, you'll just keep recycling the same old ideas. /rant.
