What if NSO somehow managed to give 3 nats bids to a state?
Anything I do does not reflect anyone or anything but me and my opinions. Any acts of idiocy committed by me should be treated likewise.

What if Unome didn't appear in images when I searched up my school's scioly team (and no, he was not on it).

What if we used 100% of the brain?
I'm not sure whether this is serious or not, but humans use nearly all of the brain, all of the time. The saying that we only use 10% of our brain is incorrect. An intuitive way to remember this is that if it were really true that we only used 10% of our brains all the time, then any bullet that struck our brain would have a 90% chance of doing no harm, which is clearly untrue.

See page 43, Myers, D. G. (2012). Psychology in everyday life, 2nd ed. Macmillan.

What if there were on-time award ceremonies? :o
That was in the 4th edition, too... I liked the line about that statistic being "one of the hardiest weeds in the garden of psychology.". It paints a interesting mental picture...

If Ladue won nats or an awards ceremony starts early, we'll finally have confirmation that, yes the multiverse theory is real, and yes, a hostile dimension has invaded ours.
no u :x we will winnats so hard that the awards ceremony actually does start early :D
