There was no need for a swallowable bowling ball. But it exists. It’s real. We have to acknowledge it.

There was no need for a 51st state dedicated to the housing of off-season holiday characters. But the government just seized my cottage land for it.

There was no need to review thousands of hours of home video just to wave at all the people you may have overlooked during previous viewings. But you did this. It happened.

Humans are convinced they know better. They are certain their superior brain stems help to avoid such lunacy. Human Beings are confident they can resist purchase of another waffle iron to make an even 9 (3 rows x 3 columns, right there on the front table where anyone can see them from the street). Their conviction is unshakable.
