when we add up all those inches
that’s going to make the fucking difference
between WINNING and LOSING
between LIVING and DYING.
“Almost to the finish line, time to slow it down and finish the race.” This is what we often think when we’re about to finish whatever it is we set out to accomplished. Whether it’s the last problem on a homework assignment, the last chapter to read before the book finishes, or the last bite of pizza before its done. We often think that because we’re so close and we’re almost done, that we can relax. Wrong. The last anything, is probably the hardest thing to do. As we near our personal finish lines, we need to realized that we have to finish strong.

We have failed to uphold Brannigan’s Law. However I did make it with a hot alien babe. And in the end, is that not what man has dreamt of since first he looked up at the stars?

The only way to progress in life is to push past our limits. The notion that we can be better than who we are today, is the driving force that enables humanity to advance further. In the movie, Limitless, we see the main character achieving superior results from taking a pill that allowed him to expand his capabilities to extraordinary lengths. While the movie is fiction and there’s no magic pill that will give us super brain capacities (not yet anyways), the ability to surpass are limits are very real. With enough effort, we can push ourselves past ourselves.

Left a good job in the city,
Working for The Man every night and day,
And I never lost one minute of sleeping,
Worrying ’bout the way things might have been.
As mentioned before in my blogs, life is random and nothing is really 100% guaranteed. There may be things that have high probabilities of happening such as the Sun raising again tomorrow or the moon continually its orbiting around our Earth, but even these things are not absolute. A comet can hit our Sun or Earth and blow everything up tomorrow or aliens might wipe our planet and its inhabitants for their highway (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy).

Don’t stop saving the world Google.
With Apple’s recent announcement of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, one has to wonder if Apple is still at all following in Steve Job’s path towards creating a more perfect machine or if everything is simply a ploy to grab money.

What’s my favorite word? BITCH!
In Too Short’s song, I Wish I Was A Baller, Too Short talks about wishing to be taller and played basketball and so forth so he can get a girl. Now I don’t know for sure if this is how he really feels or if he is just creating art, but the sentiment is still the same. People think that because they’re missing a physical trait or attribute, that it is the reason they can’t succeed. Now don’t get me wrong, war torn cities and outside forces can stop people from achieving certain things. This is not what I’m saying. What I am talking about is acceptance to ourselves. If you’re short, accept that you’re short. If you’re not smart, accept that you are not smart. The reason is that once we’ve accepted our shortcomings, we can start working towards other areas that we can control to make up for these uncontrollable “deficiencies”.
