I could write about this in great detail. It is something I believe strongly about, but there is just one point I would like to make right now. I say this in full realization that such a statement could be considered self-referential. Anyone who suggests that you are a victim of others, is trying to […]

I am the Geek Squad

This was so funny I just had to share it. First a little back story, for those not familiar with the Princess Bride. Miracle Max is a little old “wizard” type character played by Billy Cristal. Fezzik is a giant played by Andre the Giant. Fezzik and Inigo are knocking on Miracle Max’s door, but […]

With IQ being Intellectual Quotient (ability to understand and organize information), and EQ being Emotional Quotient (ability to understand and organize people).  If we were to assume that they are mutually exclusive so a person could only have one or the other, which would you want? Why? I would want a high EQ.  That would […]

My wife just sent me this quote, which I really like. “Practice until you get it right. Then practice until you can’t get it wrong.” Don’t know who it is by though. I’ll research that. . . I am also a fan of the differentiation that practice doesn’t make perfect, it makes permanent. Perfect practice […]

Do actions speak louder than words?

I saw this question and answer and it reminded me of the quote “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” by Confucius,  which I think could be the ultimate origin of this proverb.  What do you think? Who said, “Actions speak louder than words”? Talk about a […]

Fear vs. Love

Bill Hicks said: “It’s just a ride and we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself […]

Origin of Galaxy Quest motto

I always liked the motto from Galaxy Quest “Never give up, never surrender.”  I saw this quote of the day today from Hubert H. Humphrey “Never give in and never give up.”  Sounds like the same idea, but the Galaxy Quest one is still more fun.

Inside the Mind of a Cheater

Here is a very interesting interview with a cheater. (Mild language warning on link) One of the comments says “A thief believes everyone steals.” A cheater believes everyone cheats This is so true. When I was in Boy Scouts there was this one guy who always stole everyone’s food on camping trips. We will call […]

The Astroid Formally Known as Pluto

So I read this article on Space.com that some group of astronomers has decided that Pluto is no longer a planet, but is now astroid number 134340. My first response is to paraphase William Shakespeare “What’s in a name? That which we call a Pluto by any other name would still be a planet.” If […]

Be Bold

Another great quote: “Freedom lies in being bold.” – Robert Frost To me, being bold means being yourself and showing up for who you are.  To many times we try to be and do what we think other people want us to be and do.  In the end we are not ourselves and people don’t […]
