When humans talk about "discovering" things...

...we're fucking stupid.

Turtles swim from Africa to South America regularly, arctic terns go from pole to pole and wherever else they want, pterosaurs used to fly literally halfway around the world without stopping, and we think Columbus was some kind of a big deal.

Maybe you should discover existentialism Ethan. There's lots of fun stuff to argue about, like the idea that, as soon as a problem exists, its solution(s) exist as well, and are not invented but are discovered. It's a great way to waste an afternoon bickering about how stupid people are.

Hm, maybe I should discover existentialism, you say.

Blah blah blah, like that fucking turtle could have discovered all those DoD black budget projects.
