    Why do we care so much about numbers? 100? 40? 30? 25? A number accompanied by a birthday can send some people into horrific shock...

    My poor PC is not getting as much love as it used to...but fret not, for Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite will change all that.

    My local airport currently has a historic American flag exhibition. So not 50 steps away from the pornoscanners and ongoing security theater hangs the Gadsden flag.

    Yeah, right.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Some people live their lives as pessimists, constantly expecting the worst so misfortune doesn't sneak up and catch them unawares. The problem with this philosophy is that you can't escape pain-- everyone faces it at one time other another. But living in pessimism, while it may not exactly be painful, robs life of joy and replaces it with negativity. It pervades.

    Pessimism is also the easy way out. It seeks to avoid or minimize pain instead of dealing with it. Optimism, while a more enjoyable state in which to live, is harder, because bad things do happen.

    The key to optimism is resiliency. You have to be brave and strong, accept that bad things will happen to you, but believe that you have the power to overcome your pain.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    What a day, man. Riders up!
    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

    The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.

    Do not resist an evil person, but to him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer also the other. ~Matthew 5:39

    Resilience is adaptability + taking responsibility for your own actions/life in the midst of adversity.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
