    Question to Ponder

    So, I'm watching Imagination Movers this morning and a philosophical question came to mind (yeah, I get the irony).

    They were talking about mixing yellow and blue to make green and for some reason, I started thinking about how easy it must have been to discover/invent things back when everything was new. For example, the guy that discovered that yellow and blue make green gets a bunch of credit for something my kids do with chalk everyday. So I'm thinking...now that the easy stuff has been discovered, what's left? (besides the obvious things like a cure for cancer).

    PS. MrsWx just called me weird...

    I know how you feel, I could've invented lots of stuff a hundred years ago. Now all that's left is to take an existing product and put a clock on it or something.

    Re: Question to Ponder

    Have to agree with that it was so much easier to discover things back in the day. I will also say I am glad I stopped watching playhouse disney this morning after Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and wasn't subjected to Imagination Movers, I rank them next to the Doodlebops on a scale of terrible shows...

    It's still easy if you just act like you came up with the idea all on your own. Like next time you come down for the bedroom, claim your legs were cold so you chose to add length to your shorts. And from this day forward, your great idea shall be called pants!

    I actually like Imagination Movers...

    Now, back to the topic... Yes... coming up with yellow and blue make green isn't exactly rocket science.

    Sometimes though the hardest things to discover are the things that are just one simple step away. Coming up with an invention is all in how you look at things.
