why do these "come up with a shitty meaningless quote" threads always have the best quotes??
>>

I sat for a minute wondering how the fuck is that good

Then it just struck me, holy shit! I wonder how you even pondered it long enough to think of it that way

And I really do agree it's very insightful actually
>>
>>9764150

>why do these "come up with a shitty meaningless quote" threads always have the best quotes
the /lit/ userbase might not be very smart
>>
>>9764200
In one given moment the apple will have, say, 10 seeds
The "you can't count that" comes in play for the later part, you can't coun the apples in a seed. You think right, but the way I think is the same thing but for the seed, the seed may grow up into a beautiful tree that seasona fter season produces tasty apples.

Sometimes you have to kill a few crows before you get autism from the sun rays that exhibits modern rays of death like the valley that's in a desert or something like that and the dog licks an apple in that there desert with a pizza and the pizza says to the dog "woof" as that's the dogs language and crows know it to like almost as perfectly as both the dead dogs who died from heat stroke at a young age of 29 human revolutions around the equinoctial center of the earth's gravitational field that pulls down apples with the spit of dogs and werewolves who are men who were dogs who eat men because that's relatively simply what dogs eat relatively to the physics of mechanics of the universe n' junk and stuff
