Same here. And tell me why nearly every damn person in that crowd is an entitled asshole... it’s like they thrive on making us hate our lives.

That always bothered me, especially as a Christian myself. You are supposed to be representing Christ... What is up with the way you're acting to me? Edit: phrasing

I’m Broke and Friendless and I’ve Wasted My Whole Life
Learn to treat yourself the way a loving older parent would. Tell yourself: This reckoning serves a purpose. Your traveling served a purpose. Your moving served a purpose. You’re sitting on a pile of gold that you earned through your own hard work, you just can’t see it yet.

Spiritual Gifts | Precept Austin
A group of elders laid their hands on Timothy and one of them declared that he would become a great teacher, even though he was young and timid. Evidently this caught Timothy totally by surprise (2 Tim. 1:6). This kind of thing has happened to me at least twice. A pastor I’d just met once told me about a leadership assignment that he believed the Holy Spirit had given to me, one for which I felt totally unprepared. But I’ve seen the fulfillment of the words he spoke. (Some of the details he gave me were quite specific.) In seminary, our president told me about a calling God had on my life to bring the gospel to Muslims, which again took me a little by surprise. But it also has come to pass.

Imagine the Master Carpenter’s tools holding a conference: Brother Hammer presides, but several suggest he leave the meeting because he is too noisy. Brother Hammer replies, “If I have to leave this shop, Brother Screw must go also. You have to turn him around again and again to get him to accomplish anything.” Brother Screw then speaks up. “If you wish, I’ll leave. But Brother Plane must leave, too. All his work is on the surface. His efforts have no depth.” To this, Brother Plane responds, “Brother Rule will also have to withdraw, for he is always measuring folks as though he were the only one who is right.” Brother Rule then complains about Brother Sandpaper: “He ought to leave, too, because he’s so rough and always rubbing people the wrong way.” And so goes the discord. In the midst of all this discussion, in walks the Carpenter of Nazareth. He has arrived to start his day’s work. Putting on his apron, he goes to the bench to make a pulpit from which to proclaim the gospel. He uses Brothers Hammer, Screw, Plane, Rule, Sandpaper, and all the other tools. After the day’s work, when the pulpit is finished, Brother Saw arises and remarks, “Brethren, I observe that all of us are workers together with the Lord.”

Hydraulic Press Channel - Wikipedia
It took time and weird events for the Hydraulic Press channel to be discovered.

Despite its dormancy, the channel received widespread attention in March 2016 after the paper video was submitted to the social news website Reddit and subsequently received more than two million views within 24 hours.[8] Following its unexpected popularity, the channel began publishing videos again, with new videos typically receiving over a million views within days of their release. The channel's success allowed Vuohensilta to enter a deal with a 3D printing company and receive a 3D printer, which he plans to use to allow viewers to send him items to crush.[1]

William Wheaton - Wikipedia
In 1887, Wheaton gave an interview to The San Francisco Daily Examiner, describing the early days of baseball in New York. He recalled that:[1]
"We played no exhibition or match games, but often our families would come over and look on with much enjoyment. Then we used to have dinner in the middle of the day, and twice a week we would spend the whole afternoon in ball play. We were all mature men and in business, but we didn't have too much of it as they do nowadays. There was none of that hurry and worry so characteristic of the present New York. We enjoyed life and didn't wear out so fast."[1]

TIL that polar bears often hunt walruses by simply charging at a group of them and eating the ones that were crushed or wounded in the mass panic to escape. Direct attacks are rare. : todayilearned
Omg yes.
I'm Chilean and we don't make big deal of earthquakes because we have them pretty much every month.
Every time there's a foreigner in Chile and there's an earthquake, they start doing some pretty stupid stuff.
Like running outside the buildings, hiding under shitty tables, going downstairs... holy shit, it's literally not what you're supposed to do.
This is usually funny for most people but it's sad for me, back then in the 2010 earthquake (8.8 richter) I was in a hotel near the epicenter (I was on vacations) an when it started I dressed and got out of my room, then the shaking was getting stronger and this one girl in the other room started screaming (she was from europe I believe, I saw her 2 days before the earthquake talking in a strange language I didn't understand lol) and got out of her room almost naked and started running around desperately.
By this point I and a couple of guys tried to calm her down but it seemed she didn't understand shit about spanish.
She ran to the stairs and then the super big ass shaking begun, I hugged a pilar there was in there and the girl fell off the stairs while in the middle of the earthquake, hit her head and died instantly (or at least, she was dead by the time the earthquake ended).
I get it, those are creppy as fuck, and you're not familiarized with them, but damn getting freaked out is 100 times more dangerous than the thing itself.
Super sad for her, and for the many that died because they freaked out and did stupid shit, instead of just staying in your place.
Like, where are you supposed to run? It's literally shaking everywhere, you're not going to out-run an earthquake.

Mordecai Brown - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Brown lost parts of two fingers on his right hand,[1] and in the process gained a colorful nickname. He turned this handicap into an advantage by learning how to grip a baseball in a way that resulted in an exceptional curveball, which broke radically before reaching the plate. With this technique he became one of the elite pitchers of his era.

Brown was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1949.

Shaq Is a Heck of an Investor
That’s because, along with being one of the all-time greats in pro basketball, The Big Shaqtus has a surprisingly diverse off-the-court investment portfolio. Guess he got a good accountant after famously spending his first million dollars within 45 minutes of getting his first big check.

Now his net worth exceeds $350 million and, even though he’s retired from the NBA, he still manages to pull in $22 million a year through endorsement deals with the likes of AriZona Cream Soda, Icy Hot, Gold Bond, Buick, and Zales.

Windle Elijah Viars Prayer Group
"Why are we so afraid when we think about death? Death is only dreadful for those who live in dread and fear of it. Death is not wild and terrible, if only we can be still and hold fast to God's Word. Death is not bitter, if we have not become bitter ourselves. Death is grace, the greatest gift of grace that God gives to people who believe in him. Death is mild, death is sweet and gentle. It beckons to us with heavenly power, if only we realize that it is the gateway to our homeland ... Death is hell and night and cold, if it is not transformed by our faith. But that is just what is so marvelous, that we can [by our faith in Christ] transform death."

Johnnie Walker - Dear Brother - YouTube
+Dorian & Daniel Dear Brother

Walking the roads of our youth
through the land of our childhood, our home and our truth

Be near me, guide me
always stay beside me so i can be free, free

Lets roam this place
familiar and vast
our playground of green frames, our past

We were wanderers
never lost, always home

When every place was fenceless
and time was endless
our ways were always the same

Cool my demons and walk with me brother
until our roads lead us away from each other
and if your heart’s full of sorrow, keep walking, don’t rest
and promise me from heart to chest
to never let your memories die, never

I will always be alive and by your side,
in your mind

I'm free
