I’m brilliant! But no one will know because people keep beating me to the punch! Roughly 2 months ago, I came up with an idea for a short story. One that I found original, different, and had movie rights potential. This morning I found the above picture on reddit.com and my dream were snatched from me faster than The Flash rounds the planet.
And this is not the first time and original idea of mine has been done previously!
My brother is 5′ 4″. Very aggressive, ambitious, and always out to prove something. I observed this same behavior in other short people and began to see a trend. I named my theory after my brother and hoped to make millions of dollars off my discovery! But that didn’t matter. When I shared my ideas with the smartest person in my 4th grade class, he informed me of the Napoleon Complex.
