Why Mark Burnett, a Brit and the Executive Producer for Survivor, The Apprentice and The Voice never wants to stop looking for the 17 foot giraffe.  he tell this story:

At am imaginary party attended by Americans and British guests.   Someone mentions that there’s a17 foot purple giraffe wandering in the backyard.  The Americans jump to take a look while the British remain seated, knowing there’s no way such a fantasy creature could be cruising outside their window.   After the Americans take a peek ans see nothing, they laugh at themselves, realizing how preposterous a purple giraffe sighting would be.

“The reason Brits miss a lot of things is that they are not willing to look for the purple giraffe, because they think it is foolish” says Burnett….. But, one day there will be, and I never to be the person who sits onhis ass and doesn’t look for the purple giraffe.”
