Random Thoughts/Things?

I wasn’t really sure what to call this thread, but I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for awhile now. Basically, anyone can post anything here. Any random thought you have, any random thing that happens to you, any random question that pops into your mind. Have fun, and don’t be afraid to be random.

Only if I like the book/notebook.

Me! Is it weird that the first thing I do when I get a new book is smell it? I swear, they all smell different. I've gotten pretty good at predicting their genres based on the smell (I'm not crazy! I think...). Comic books totally smell different then regular books. Books in a series all smell similar, and authors have a specific smell as well. I don't know about notebeooks though...

Ever notice how the fog from fog machines smells like maple syrup?

Yes! I first noticed when my class went to the fire department for fire training and we all got in this tiny model house where they used fake fog as smoke.

Can fish get anemia?

That is quite random. Why wouldn’t they, though?

Does anyone else ever feel strange when they see someone else act in the exact way you would in the situation?  I almost feel like I'm reading people's thoughts, it's so bizarre.

Then I wondered what if we're all made of a set of millions or trillions of individual traits.  Every thought process and reaction to a situation is predetermine.  No two people would ever be alike, but sometimes we still see a trait come forward.

Does that make any sense? Thoughts can be hard to describe sometimes.

Yes. When I'm watching Wheel of Fourtune I feel like I'm conntrolling them. It is weird and cool.

and here we see the common comedy cliche: someone says something very deep, and someone else responds to that thing, only in a manner that is not deep at all. Let's get back to our tour.

This happens to me like every time I'm with this one friend....

Cool thought. Sometimes at some random time during the day, for example, before I do my homework, I think about how I don't want to do it and how it will take a long time and how I will feel when I finish, like it doesn't matter anymore, and when I finish, I think back to thinking about finishing and think, 'It doesn't really matter anymore'... I can't properly describe it. Something about the passage of time really gets me thinking...

Have you noticed how time doesn't really exist, exactly? Also, shouldn't Batman be at least 80 by now? Isn't it strange how everybody's tastebuds are different? Why does bread go in a toaster and toast comes out, but when a waffle goes in a toaster a waffle comes out? Why do I playfully tease my friends? Why don't song lyrics really capture feelings, but the way th singer who sings the song can make them have meaning? Is Heaven similar to Earth? Is it weird that I keep planning Minecraft Story Mode season three even though it'll never come? Can an 11-year old feminist really speak up? Why does it matter to people that I play Minecraft instead of Fortnite? is it really my fault that there's a voice in the back of my head telling me I'm weak and stupid and not good enough? Can anyone answer any of these questions? Why have I been rambling for so long? 

-Rant over. Kudos to you if you read this.-
