An Accident, Perhaps

We have conventionally been taught that accidents are bad, and should be avoided. Ok, admitted, I’m probably generalizing a bit too much, but it holds too.

Well, a different approach to look at the whole issue would be that accidents are good.  Sometimes, they can be.

For example, thanks to Alexander Fleming neglecting to clean his laboratory, he discovered penicillin. I believe that we must all be ready to accept the consequences of our accidents and mistakes. Mind you, they might just be good.

Want more examples? Sure is. This is an example.

A result of me mistakenly opening the Camera app on my phone, and then accidentally snapping a picture of myself in the mirror trying to close it.
