    I know this seems stupid but today i was so bored i was quick looking all my apps. When I quick Looked textedit i read

    "Dear Kane

    Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round kegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. you can quote them disagree with them glorify or vilify them about the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things.

    Take Care,
    John Appleseed"

    then i thought to myself that what i read was awful familiar and i remembered it was from an old apple commercial. the think different commercial. I know this isn't a big discovery or anything and i am a bit high but check it out. Quicklook textedit and go see.

    This is not a discovery at all: it's been well known for a long time what the text on the icon is and where it comes from.
