Does your mind work like this, too? These just came out of pretty much nowhere today.
1. Egg salad is really chicken salad. It's just at a different stage of development.
2. I've have heard of people being disgruntled. I'm trying to picture what gruntled would look like.
3. If our knees worked the way a crane's does, what would chairs look like?
4. Have you noticed that people used to look older at a younger age?
These people were teenagers.
5. What led the first person to smoke tobacco to think about going to all the trouble of drying it, rolling it up, lighting it on fire, and sticking it in their mouth?
How would it even occur to you to give it a try?
6. Did cheese just kind of happen the first time after leaving milk sitting out in the sun too long? And if so, who decided it might be a good idea to eat it?
7. Did Albert Einstein ever experience imposter syndrome?
8. The tin can was invented in 1810, and commercial canning started in 1813. The can opener was patented in 1858. Really, who would buy canned food before 1858?
I realize this article says that the intervening years used tin so thick, the cans had to be hammered open. It still begs the question: how would you hammer one open? And who would want to do it?

9. My cat watches me intently getting ready for work in the morning. Is he trying to figure out what the heck I'm doing when it obviously makes no sense to him?

10. If I jump out of bed and go straight to work, people say I look disheveled. Why is it that when I have everything perfectly put together, nobody tells me I look sheveled?
