"A firefighter was arrested by a California Highway Patrol officer for a parking violation. He had parked his truck to help the victims of a car accident." 

Training - "Walking into the gym each day is your way of kicking Father Time in the balls."

"Never stop training.  The minute that you allow the mindset of “the gym will be there tomorrow” to permeate, the wheels fall off.  Time is a cruel mistress.  She is unforgiving and does not accept excuses or mediocrity.  Walking into the gym each day is your way of kicking Father Time in the balls...

Mediocrity is the full length fur coat you are wearing when you get thrown into a fast moving ice cold river…wearing lead shoes.  My team at work hears me say repeated,  ”nothing destroys a body, a mind, a business, will or relationship like mediocrity.”  Don’t be ordinary when extraordinary people get to have so much fun and go cool places. Fuck mediocrity."

"First, one must assume all responsibility for everything that's happened or has failed to happen to them. Once you adopt this as a philosophy for governing your life, you become empowered. You see that you and you alone decide your future through the choices you make. This philosophy is the key to unlocking your potential as by doing so you not only assume responsibility, but also control of everything in your life. Successful people choose to learn from adversity and allow it to make them stronger, while weaker people use adversity as a crutch to blame their failures on..."

You want to know what my trigger warning is?

Trigger warnings - the idea that mere words on a page are so emotionally damaging and psychologically traumatizing that you must warn others about them.  No greater evidence of weak-minded, soft-headed, nerf-the-harsh-edges-of-the-world because I am incapable of dealing with it nonsense.  Bonus points given if the one warning about, or being warned of, trigger warnings describe themselves as "strong" or "independent."

When "Trigger Warning" Lost All Its Meaning - The Awl
"Triggers are a pretty specific psychological phenomenon. They are not the same as being reminded of things one does not like. When the term becomes too general it stifles regular conversation because the phrase carries with it, in common usage, the idea that we should respect the severe psychological responses to otherwise ordinary exchanges, and should modify our behavior accordingly. In the case of a severe response, this seems justified. In lesser cases it seems like a word used to make people stop talking about something you don't want them to talk about."

I need to get a card that says "Go Fuck Yourself."

“One of feminism’s irritating reflexes is its fashionable disdain for “patriarchal society,” to which nothing good is ever attributed. But it is patriarchal society that has freed me as a woman. It is capitalism that has given me the leisure to sit at this desk writing this book. Let us stop being small-minded about men… If civilization had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts.” - Camille Paglia, lesbian feminist, in Sexual Personae


"Calling the experience “completely transformative,” local 22-year-old Angela Fisher told reporters Tuesday that her six-day visit to the rural Malawian village of Neno has completely changed her profile picture on Facebook. “As soon as I walked into that dusty, remote town and the smiling children started coming up to me, I just knew my Facebook profile photo would change forever,” said Fisher, noting that she realized early in her nearly weeklong visit just how narrow and unworldly her previous Facebook profile photos had been.
