Granted it was poorly phrased. Perhaps my follow ups provided some better context.

Doesn't that picture just show, there is very little new under the sun. When I was in my early twenties I was pondering the misery of camping in a rainy country. Started thinking about a tent on my roof that opened like a suitcase. Thought what would I call it? Rooftop tent, so I searched on AltaVista or something like that hey presto - someone had already thought of it, pretty much exactly as I envisaged it.
The older I get, the more I am convinced that "A Confederacy of Dunces" is non fiction.
