“Maybe, but at least I won’t be unoriginal.” This is one of my favorite lines from Good Will Hunting, when Will tears down that ponytail guy in the Harvard bar. Unfortunately, with seven billion people on the planet, it’s really hard to be a true original. I was just talking to my brother who was at the Bulls vs Heat game last night and I told him to check out entertainthing.com for my Chris Bosh post. He laughed and told me, “Ha, that’s great…actually, the first play of the game a guy behind me stood up and yelled, ‘Chris Bosh is an Avatar!’” Uh-oh. I Googled ‘Chris Bosh Avatar’ and man! It’s definitely out there.
I feel like I have independently come up some really great ideas…you know Charles Darwin went through the same exact thing. While he was taking his sweet time putting together his theories of Natural Selection in On The Origin of Species a man named Alred Russel Wallace was putting forth the same concept. Unfortunately, one of the people he put his concept forward to was Charles Darwin who was then prompted to rush out and beat Wallace to the punch. I am just like Charles Darwin…or Wallace…but at least I’m the only one who compared Bosh to the female Avatar Neytiri. I still call it a win for me.
