A lot of really cool things have been discovered by weirdos doing weird things.
If somebody hadn’t decided to fry a corn kernel to see what would happen, we wouldn’t have popcorn.
If somebody hadn’t rubbed a ball of rubber on his homework Just Because, we wouldn’t have erasers.
If someone hadn’t taken a bean, dried it out, roasted it, crushed it, poured hot water over it, then drank what came out, we wouldn’t have coffee.
So, you know, don’t put me down for my experiments in the basement. You never can tell.
