I find myself at times driving in my car, or walking down the street, or perhaps lying in my bed, with a lack of inspiration- that life itself is inherently boring, that my job on this earth is to wake up, go to work, come home, work, and then sleep. Rinse, repeat. This “American Dream” must be a lie, I tell myself, if it really is what to many would seem like a boring, caged life. If all of this is true, I say, then has the peak of my life been before I was old enough to speak? 

At times, we find inspiration in the strangest places. A little bird tending to her young in a nest that you can see in the treetops. A group of ducklings being led to shelter by a mother duck. Those little bits of humanity that, oddly enough, you also see in animals, and in some cases, even more than you would in your fellow man or woman. 

Lest we not forget, there are still examples of people who do kind things for each other. You might see the occasional BuzzFeed article on the “Top 15 stories That Restore Your Faith in Humanity” or perhaps a Cracked article on “Why People Are Awesome” but it’s so easy to just look around you and really see the world. The person who might pay the bill for a couple who is on an anniversary dinner can be just as good of a person to this world as somebody who holds the door open for you when it’s pouring rain outside and you’re just trying to stay dry. Even somebody who takes an extra 15 minutes of their time to try to explain a complex problem to you is incredibly important to this world.

Do we live in a culture where these incredible feats of generosity are minimized, and only large shows of altruism are rewarded? Maybe. Do we have to let it remain that way? I don’t think so. 

I started this note speaking about how things can seem so bleak and unfriendly, where the blacks and grays of the business attire and cars make the world less colorful. But where is color without a lack thereof? There is no light without darkness. It is through those moments in which you see how monotonous and awful this world can be that you can see just how incredible people can be as well. 

Take a moment to think about the people on a daily basis that you see who give their time for you. Think about the faceless saviors that make your day a little easier, a little better. Those nameless people who might deliver your mail, give you the package you've been waiting for, who clean your office at night so that when you come to work the next day it’s pristine. Think about people you've never met who you listen to on the radio and consider somewhat of a friend to you, or a podcaster who you've watched grow from the beginning of the show to where they are today. 

Isn't it crazy? 

Now realize that you are one of those people too. 

You are somebody who can make differences in people’s lives just as much as they do in yours. 

Some might say that it’s hard to change things with one little action by one person. But if you think about it, it’s not just one person. Every single person has inside them a capacity to change. The character of a person isn't defined by what they experience when things are going well, but when they aren't. Sometimes not everybody is strong enough to get through things on their own.

Sometimes people only need a second chance.

A guardian angel.

A faceless hero.

A nameless inspiration.

A life can change in a second. It only takes an instant to make a difference.

What will you be?

50 facts about Earth! Check out the full sized infographic here:
Zephyr López Cervilla's profile photo
"Fifty Unbelievable Facts about Earth" (114)
— Probably because more than one is BS, like this one:

1. ”Antarctica has as much ice as the Atlantic Ocean has water”
Atlantic Ocean (water volume): 310 ·10^6 km^3
Antarctica (ice sheet water-volume equiv.): 26 ·10^6 km^3
310 / 26 ≈ 12

This certainly comes to a surprise, a wrong statement that overestimates the significance of the Antarctic ice sheet.

Also, several factoids (either there’s no strong evidence to support them or they are predictions about the future), misleading statements and some more BS:

2. ”There are not 24 hours in a day
23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4 seconds — the time it takes Earth to rotate on its axis, [sic] called a sidereal day”
Misleading. While 24 hours is annual average of the lengths of the solar day, the sidereal day isn’t THE day. Likewise the sidereal year isn’t THE year either, but rather it’s most commonly applied to the tropical/solar year. The Earth’s orbit is as good a reference as the “fixed” stars.

The Hoba Meteorite was flat on both sides, soma have skipped through the atmosphere like a stone over water.”

4. ”12 miles (19 km)
The Armstrong Limit
Altitude at which it is necessary to wear a pressurised suit.
Without one, water boils at body temperature”
This is actually misleading. The reason why you should wear a pressurised suit has nothing to do with water boiling at body temperature. Your inner body fluids wouldn’t boil any time soon since they are still under pressure.

5. ”You may have actually been able to
Heavier than previously thought, an >8,000-kg T. Rex’s [sic] top speed
was likely a little slower than an average human’s."

6. “99%
Of the living space on Earth is represented by oceans”
Misleading. It all boils down on how they define that “living space”

7. ”Up to 1 million species live in the world’s oceans
2/3 are yet to be described”

8. ”Earth is the only planet in our solar system with plant tectonics
Without them, carbon wouldn’t be consumed and recycled, and the Earth would overheat
(Just like Venus).”
What is wrong here is actually the conclusion. Without plate tectonics, carbon would eventually become unaccessible buried in the Earth’s crust, therefore the contribution of atmospheric CO2 to the greenhouse effect would progressively fade away, thus contributing to cool down the planet.

9. “99% of the earth’s gold lies in its core
Enough to form a 1.5-foot coat around the surface on the earth.”

10. ”2.8 km / 1.7 miles
Te depth at which bacteria have been found.
They survive by using radioactivity from uranium to confer water into usable energy.”

11. “2 million years
Since the last rainfall in the driest place on earth: Dry Valleys, Antarctica.”

12. “75%
Of the earth’s animal species could be extinct within 300 years.”
Speculative prediction.

13. “14%
The percentage of the world’s species that have been identified”

14. “106 billion
People have existed on planet Earth
9.2 billion
The population on Earth by 2050”
Speculation and speculative prediction.

The food is very good, well worth the cost. It is great quality that you would pay much more for at other places. The decor isn't very fancy, they do have a few flat-screen TVs for sports fans, however it is more of a dine-in establishment than a sports bar. Finally, the waitstaff is mostly attentive; a few times (out of dozens) I have been there with a less-than attentive host, but I knew it was not the norm. Would definitely recommend at least a visit.
