About WIR

Matt and Blake in 2005 (in Germany)

Dear Readers,

WhatIRealized.com is the illegitimate brainchild of former fat kids Blake Reiter and Matt Perlmutter.  This blog is the product of years of human observation.  We realize something, take a picture, and then tell you about it.  That’s it.  It’s very simple.

We also create words for things that don’t already have words.  Here, check it out.

You might be thinking, “If it’s two of you, why is your website called WhatIRealized dot com, as opposed to WhatWeRealized dot com?” Well, smartass, we own that web domain too.  Go ahead, type WhatWeRealized.com into your browser and see what happens.  Right back to WhatIRealized.   YES!  In your face!

We’re not weird; you’re weird.

– Blake and Matt
