That's why you don't mock those "as seen on T.V." miracle products. "A Comb-sumption™ brand Comb-Spoon! You can eat, and keep your hair tidy with the same utensil!" "But why would I want that? I'd get food in my hair, and hair in my food." "I am the father of modern physics." "Yeah, alright, I'll take three."

When you try to think about it it's almost like he's actually an alien or a giant hoax. I mean how is it actually possible for someone who lived centuries ago to have thought up the things we'd barely come up with in the last ~hundred of years? It's like he's invented everything and we don't even have most of his engineering drawings so in fact he probably did invent everything(I wonder if he perhaps even had a spaceship drawing tucked in somewhere?). That while being a genius artist, musician etc....being a genius happens but being a genius in like literally every single aspect of everything is just so absolutely astonishing it's almost unbelieveable.

That film, Loving Vincent was interesting. Not only because of the painter himself, but also ot analyzes mental health in general. Well, you can watch it this way too. And I like multi dimensional approaches to a story.

Ah yeah I remember reading about that. The man certainly had an...interesting view on life and achieving success(but evidently his approach works, judging by Apple).

I dunno, so far I haven't seen many people running through the streets naked to celebrate their success. Maybe we just don't make great enough discoveries these days...

Maybe I am wrong, but I doubt asking to, "Turn off the lights." Was a thing during his lifetime. I mean electricity was probably known back then, but one didn't simply flip a switch.
