Why does the obvious need noticing?

You know that saying (it could be a meme) – the one that starts with ‘Birds fly, fish swim…’? It usually ends with a different verb for humans, depending on the mood of the author. The more common ones are, ‘run,’ or ‘talk.’

As in ‘Birds fly, fish swim and humans run.’ Or ‘Birds fly, fish swim and humans talk.’

I’d like to put forward my own version.

Birds fly. Fish swim. And humans forget.

And that’s why we need to notice the obvious.

About me:

My name is Tan Lay. I’m a primate born on planet Earth after the agricultural revolution, trying to adapt to the digital revolution. I usually sleep in a wooden house on the Northern Hemisphere.

I write regularly, podcast a little less regularly and walk around Helsinki with startup entrepreneurs once in a while.

My blog is called Noticing The Obvious. If you liked my idea about humans forgetting, let me remind you to bookmark this page so you can come back to it – because if you don’t, you will forget.
