    Mind blowing thought for the day

    This came to mind when I was reading the giant hologram thread. From an interview I heard with Deepak Chopra.

    He said that when people think of how life began, they almost always start with the premise that we began as physical beings who learned how to think, when it is almost certainly the other way around- we are thoughts that learned how to create the physical body.

    The more you learn about stem cells and things of that nature, the more you realize that he might be right.

    Uh, no..first of all, even if we began as thoughts, processes in our mother created us first.

    Hey Apu, do you have any of that new beer with candy floating in it, Skittlebrau?

    Such a product does not exist sir, I think you dreamed it.

    Ok, just just me a six pack of Duff and a couple packs of Skittles.
