I remember there was this time where I was watching an episode of Lost during its heyday with my friend. I mentioned that I thought Sawyer was lying and my friend responded with, “I was just thinking that!” It was bullshit. He wasn’t thinking that. I know he wasn’t thinking that. He would have said it if he was thinking that. He merely agreed with what I was saying and wanted to take credit for it. Good ideas aren’t universal and saying “I was just thinking that” is a copout. Don’t take credit for other people’s ideas and observations. And don’t make excuses for your stupidity. And try to avoid saying “I was just thinking that!”… Because you weren’t and everybody fucking knows it.
