The sad truth is, whatever original thought you think you have, have probably been thought of before. I’m not speaking about the really clever, Eureka ideas that you rush out and slap a patent on, so you can make a fortune and step on everyone else’s head, or write a book about, and share your innermost soul with the world. I’ve never experienced either of those. No, I mean the random tumbleweed that blows through your mind from time to time, about everyday flotsam and jetsam on the tide of life. Bear with me, this is going somewhere.
I have an example which I lay before you now. I was researching diligently for one of my insightful and thought-provoking posts, and came across this image of Farrah Fawcett (‘Who’, I hear the under 35s scream, ‘the heck is she?’). She was the Kim Kardashian of her day, the 1970s, only with a normal sized bottom instead of an outsized one. Nevertheless she was a woman before her time, and was possibly the first star to persuade her dentist to get the peroxide out to create her, for the times, unnaturally white teeth.
Ok, here’s the thought. She looks just like David Bowie in this photo I came across online. Immediately after the first thought, there was a second, and that was…I wonder has anyone else noticed this? Well, I’m at the right place to find out, the world wide web has everything you need to know at your fingertips. And I’m not alone, because someone else thinks so too. Take a look at this.
Uncanny. Wonder what my next original thought will be.
