While reading about one of my favourite cheeses, Cheshire cheese, I inadvertedly stumbled across the story of the Cheshire Mammoth Cheese. In 1802 the upright citizens of Cheshire, Massachusetts, gifted President Jefferson a cheese with the motto "Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God."
This cheese apparently weighed in at 1234 lb, was four feet wide and 15 inches thick.
Know your haters. Believe it or not, they're usually not the type of person you'd actually hate have as your hater. It will help you understand that being disliked doesn't have to be so bad after all.
(After I had confirmed that the kind of person who strongly dislikes me is also the kind of person I hope I'll never end up as.)
