Are we really all the same?

We are all unique.
Which by definition means, we are all different.
Which, in turn, should mean we're all the same.
But we're not, because we're all unique.

    May 1 2013: Life is strange. Sometimes I feel my blood, and I wonder what makes it my blood, it seems kind of like generic blood, like it could be anybody else's blood. The Rolling Stones had a blood change, where maybe all the blood was taken out of their body and changed with others' blood, and yet they still remained the Rolling Stones.
    • May 2 2013: Hi Greg,
      what an awesome concept - the Stones had a communal blood transplant?? Coincidentally, I was listening to a so-called Stones expert on the radio who was discussing whether or not the Stones rocked as good as they used to... Perhaps is was in their blood?!

      I often hear people say, when my kids sing and make music, that it's in their blood. I don't necessarily nod in agreement, because they have constant access to instruments and we sing and make music every day. But I don't necessarily disagree either...

      My dad is an industrial designer and we always laughed at our own private joke, that I had 'designer genes'. Pun intended.
