This poem hangs on my wall now. I used to read it daily to my class YEARS ago. It's my motivator to keep going despite negativity.

IF by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!

This is huge. Finally!
For the first time ever, you'll be able to watch every single olympic event live. NBC has teamed up with YouTube to livestream more than 3000 hours of coverage from the London 2012 Olympics for free.

World's Funniest Analogies.

I practically cried laughing so hard reading some of these.

Annual English Teachers' awards for best student metaphors/analogies
found in actual student papers:


His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like
underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.

He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy
who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those
boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at
high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one
of those boxes with a pinhole in it.

She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just
before it throws up.

Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree.

The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling
ball wouldn't.

From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie,
surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and
Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.

The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry
them in hot grease.

Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the
grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left
Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at
4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had
also never met.

He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant, and she was the East
River.

Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one
that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.

Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.

The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law George. But unlike George,
this plan just might work.

The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating
for a while.

He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a
real duck that was actually lame, maybe from stepping on a land mine or
something.

The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg
behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with
power tools.

He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if
she were a garbage truck backing up

Median salaries have almost tripled for women since 1940.

And Pennsylvania was the second most populous state after New York back then. Who would have guessed?

Some emails, are just too good not to share - & Maxine is one of them...

"I was in Starbucks recently when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my fart with the beat of the music."

"After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my coffee, and noticed that everybody was staring at me...."

"Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod."

...and how was your day?

well seems like we can finally go back in time :D
A claim that neutrinos traveled faster than light would be revolutionary if true, but "I would bet against it," physicist says.

I have been getting a nag screen on my alarm mobile app, it was too long and so instead of reading it I finally switched it to "don't show me this again"(hopefully ever). But soon after in a few minutes I was wondering what was in that disclaimer.

And I was thinking all sorts of fine-prints and disclaimers should have some kind of law/rules for brevity. Like say - a non-financial impacting disclaimer/fineprint should be not more than "x" words long. And a financial impacting one should not be "y" words long. x being way different than y. Also anything significant like say a store return policy could be in a different color.

If brevity can work in technology (think Apple but not ITunes), why can't it work for terms and conditions, disclaimers etc.?

"Teach it in schools" - hmm - that will do it. It'll take a long time, but I can at least imagine it. Having said that, T & C differ from place to place, so a person relocating will have a lot of learning to do, won't he?
