What Do YOU Think?

I’m interested in getting your thoughts about stuff I see and hear, quotes I read, stuff that passes as knowledge – and starting an authorey conversation.



So true. Enthusiasm and motivation are fleeting at times, so understand their importance.

          1. You may have to be smart, but affect doesn’t effect genius. People half assedly fall into greatness all the time…and great things happen under their noses.

            Penicillin and Viagra were discovered by luck.

            1. Well, kinda. They were working hard on another drug – one that would help people who were bedridden, I think, and noticed the drugs they gave them for better blood circulation had an additional side effect. So it was seizing the opportunity that resulted from hard work in another vein that created the “lucky” situation, and then they had to be smart enough to see a benefit to somebody else for needing erections from a pill. Probably seems obvious in retrospect, but at the time I’m sure half the researchers were embarrassed about that result and weren’t thinking about where they could sell such a pill.

              I think penicillin was kinda similar, seeing a result from a test when they were looking at something else.

              Either way, I agree: the people involved had to be smart to be in the circumstance in the first place.

            2. As was shampoo – which was supposed to be a cure for baldness and corn flakes – which was a desperate attempt to salvage an otherwise culinary disaster.

  1. I think I want to think on it a minute, and get back with you, but it’s been reblogged on campbellsworld.wordpress.com/
