For every idea I post here, there are most likely two possibilities –


(1)   That my ideas are unoriginal, and I know the original source. Generally speaking, I link to these sources to give them credit.

(2)   My ideas have already been posted or written elsewhere, I just don’t know it and I think my ideas are original.


Certainly there are very few authentically new idea under the sun. And sure, some people have unique brains that can actually think up original ideas, but I have doubts about my own abilities to do this, especially considering how little research I do.


I’m just saying this as a disclaimer. Let the record show I make no claims of originality here.


And if anyone knows where someone has written a post with the same ideas as this one, let me know, because that would be awesomely self-referential if I could link to it.
