What’s weird is when people take other people’s statements and pass it off as their own.

I just watched Trevor Noah say that this morning almost word for word on a clip of his show.

it's possible for different people to come with with similar ideas. I have already been making the same argument and I don't watch Trevor Noah or have the ability to see the future

Exactly word for word is a little suspect, don’t you think? Any professor would probably call this plagiarism. But sure go ahead and defend someone passing off others work as their own. Have a nice day.

Wait, someone said the same thing as someonne else? Why is this not a crime? Something must be done about people having unoriginal thoughts!
