Original thoughts? No such thing apparently.

It’s a thing I just realised only the other day and it’s scary. So you’re wondering something like — well — how long can an armadillo hold its breath underwater. Straight to google — type ‘how long can an armadillo’ and the sentence is completed for you ‘hold its breath’. Who the hell besides me would want to know that stuff? (And it’s six minutes if you’re wondering too…) The thing is, it’s really hard to have an original thought that hasn’t already been used up by other people.

PS In the course of researching armadillos I also discovered that a Florida man contracted leprosy after having sex with one; true alternative fact. Check it out.
