Penny Stock Disaster
I had this friend a long time ago who made a pretty funny mistake in the stock market.
This was back during the dot com boom of the late nineties.
He spent three hundred bucks on a penny stock, but he bough the wrong stock on accident.
What The Eff?
Many inventions were made purely by accident.
Charles Goodyear allegedly found the formula of vulcanized rubber by mistake.
The microwave oven was created by mistake.
Post-it notes were an accidental byproducts of the space program back in the 60’s.
Drugged Out Weirdos
I have some really strange friends.
They take a lot of drugs and have a lot of really strange parties.
One of them is a blindfolded baking party.
There’s a guy who bought a house in the hills.
He wanted to do some additions to his basement, but he didn’t want to hassle with local regulations.
But he found that there was secret network of natural cave tunnels under his house.
But what he didn’t know was these tunnels were used by authorities back in the middle ages to get rid of people.
Crazy people, evil people, heretics or pretty much anybody that nobody wanted to have around.
But once they’d been in there a few hundred years, their ghosts somehow merged into a collective consciousness.
But then the collective consciousness forget who they were and why they were there.
When he was digging down into his future second level basement, he unwittingly released this collective conscious.
But since none of the individual ghosts remembered themselves, this ended up being a cloud of collective amnesia.
A collective amnesia that floats along the countryside, making people forget everything as it rolls through.
But it creates some kind of strange vortex behind it.
Brains Don’t Like Vacuum
The end result is you’ll first have a collection of ideas.
Then this amnesia cloud will hit you, and you’ll forget everything.
Then the vacuum in your mind will be filled by whatever stray ideas or memories that are floating around.
Before, I, Uh…
Which means whatever you believe to be true now isn’t what you thought was true a few minutes before.
But since you can’t remember what you don’t remember, you can really compare the false ideas that you do remember, to the true ideas that you don’t remember.
The only rule is somebody has to wear a blindfold, and then bake something from scratch.
Rat Poison Casserole
Somebody has to watch them, so they don’t inadvertently put rat poison in the mystery casserole.
And everybody has to eat this.
One potential accidental invention would be the monkey island scenario.
Monkey Island Disaster
Which is when you get a bunch of monkeys on an island and give them enough typewriters and paper.
Eventually, as the story goes, one of them will write Shakespeare.
Of course, this is making accidents on purpose to create a specific outcome.
Which is completely different than accidental inventions tend to be.
Strangely enough, the accidental investment turned his 300 dollars into 30K dollars.
Of course, he eventually lost it, as you would expect.
Lucky accidents sometimes turn into success strategies.
