shit happens

It really does when you think about it. You take shits when you need to, and you get the shits when you eat really gross food. But one thing i've noticed the past few weeks. Ever since me and Kim started dating, we based things that are very very similar between us as "orange". So with that in mind, we really start to notice how orange the world is. Traffic cones which you could only give a second thought about started to appear everywhere. Construction vehicles were orange, as were signs and buttons and clothes. A blog I regularly haunt: www.cynical-c.com came out with a startling article that stunned me. The Baader-Meinhof Phenemonom. And I quote: " You may have heard about Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon before. In fact, you probably learned about it for the first time very recently. If not, then you just might hear about it again very soon. Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one happens upon some obscure piece of information– often an unfamiliar word or name– and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly. Anytime the phrase "That's so weird, I just heard about that the other day" would be appropriate, the utterer is hip-deep in Baader-Meinhof." So that's the jist of it. It's truly real.
