And this is why I love discovery

You know you’ve hit on something when another scientist smacks their forehead and says:

“This is a brilliant discovery. You would have thought someone would have noticed this, but nobody ever did.”

I have no idea really what this means, beyond the fact that human DNA has components dating back 1.5 billion years. Next time somebody says that you or somebody else is an “old soul”, you can in all honesty reply: “You have no frikken idea.”
