Freckles and Life

"Today, in science class, we were discussing genetics, and how two different traits can both appear within someone, like a black-and-white speckled rooster. I thought of how awesome it would be if there were speckled people with polka dots on their faces. I then remembered freckles. MLIA."

The above MLIA is actually pretty interesting if you think about it. How many things exist in normal life that we would think were really cool or abnormal or strange if we hadn't grown up in a world that had always had those things? The answer is pretty much everything, from gravity to cars to feet to oxygen. It only changes depending on your prospective. So the next time you step out the door, think to yourself that not only is the world just as completely and utterly mind-bogglingly, jaw-droppingly awesome as it is boringly normal and dull, but it's also both at the same time
