We all have to start somewhere. Some of us at far more humble a place than others.

It’s weird to think that the brains rattling around in our skulls today are essentially unchanged from the dollops of grey matter bequeathed by Fate to our smelly, unshaven ancestors all those thousands and thousands of years ago. The person what thunked up “rock + other rock = fire” is basically the same as the person who figured out that Twitter would be a swell idea. That’s crazy, and amazing, and just seems totally fantastically unbelievable.

Right up until you see what people tend to write on Twitter, at which point it becomes all too frighteningly easy to comprehend.
