Throwback to June 5, 2008 when Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce had to be taken off of the court in a wheelchair. It was the third quarter of Game 1 of the NBA Finals, and he returned to the game minutes later. Ever since that day, Pierce has been trolled for faking his injury, while in truth, he defecated his dungarees during the game and had to get helped to the locker room to change his pants.

This conspiracy theory has been widely accepted as truth. In fact, ahead of Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals, Pierce even hinted at that very idea,

“I have a confession to make … I just had to go to the bathroom, I had to go to the bathroom … something went down, I had to go to the bathroom.”

However, two years down the line, Pierce has back tracked on his admission. He joined Michelle Beadle on her podcast ‘What Did I Miss?’ to discuss ESPN firing, LeBron and… Poopy Pants. Paul Pierce asking the big questions with Michelle Beadle,

“If you poop your pants, does it make sense to sit down and mush it in a wheelchair?”

Although Pierce does raise an interesting question, because he is right about the mushing, why would he have admitted that he just had to go to the bathroom back in 2019? It seems like Pierce has put some light into this. He says that he gets made fun of every day “on his internet” and “can’t believe that people really believe” that he pooped his pants. Poopy pants trying act smarty pants, you say?

Well, Mr. Pierce, people likely believe that you did in fact, have a bowel struggle in 2008 because you hinted directly at the fact that you did the same in 2019.

The poopy pants mystery continues, I guess?

In search of simplicity and inner peace, Gunjan is basically a guy soldiering through his paranoia. You could say Art, Witty/Dark Humor, Movies, Anime, Post-rock/Black Metal/Hip-Hop/Shoegaze Music, Football, Creative Writing, Photography, Videography are his forte. A Jack of All Trades and a Master of Many. Dangerously bipolar. He can go on months without being productive and also work 12 hours straight. He's basically a lazy, procrastinating person. But if art and ideas hit him like sudden motivational sparks, he can invest sleepless nights on that. Drive to creating art: Sometimes guilt and inferiority complex. Sometimes sudden spikes of motivation seeing artists like yuumei, bosslogic, Kim Jung gi amongst others. Gunjan loves doing scribble art the most. It defines him. He says - 'It's like I'm lost and hoping to find a way out at the end. Expressing my chaotic, spontaneous mind, looking for inner peace in those infinite entanglements I create.' He loves to let the ink flow, losing control, losing myself completely in the act.' Once he was asked - 'why this constant urge of being good at everything? You are great at the things you do best. You don't have to be a master of every art. ' To that he replied - 'because that's how I work. I just don't like this idea of stopping at what I have already achieved. Limitations disgust me. I believe in becoming a jack of all trades and a master of many, plus this innate ability of being good at what I try doing and this upper hand of being a fast learner. I want to master all kinds of musical instruments, sports, forms of art.' He invests in ideas, brainstorming, creativity, flexibility, originality. Professionally however, he is that regular ‘IT guy’. He previously worked on roles such as Full Stack Engineer, Frontend Developer, UX/UI Designer, Digital Artist and Data Analyst. He is willing to use his flexibility and adaptability, coupled with the innate ability of being an extremely fast learner to use his words and wisdom here at Thirsty For News. Fun fact: He is obsessed with huskies, number "7", Germany, Japan, football, Naruto, Breaking Bad, cinema (in a broader perspective) Tldr: In search of simplicity and inner peace.
