If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it ... Bert Einstein
What about the inspired individual who first decided to dip a biscuit in his tea though! Genius I say. And the first person to look at a sheep and announce he was going to stick its woolly coat in his slippers. Surely they went through vast amounts of ridicule. One wonders how they handled this pressure from the doubters all about them. I can assure you that in 1988 while watching Commando, if my buddy had mentioned Arnie Schwarzenegger would be Governor of California at any time in my existence I would have spilled my slush puppy over him in a fit of laughter.
