    As statistics professors are fond of pointing out, the average American has one ovary, one testicle, and half a uterus.  (In this case, the average the professors are using is the mean.  But if you had one ovary, one testicle, and half a uterus, you’d probably be mean, too).
    Note: I bet this guy's favorite holiday is Snarktoberfest.

    Mind! I don’t mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade.
  • Justin shared from Bay's End by Edward Lorn
    When you live in the past, you live with regret. Hindsight is always 20/20 and all that. You have time to question yourself about what you did, ponder the outcome of your actions. You ask yourself, day in and day out, if you couldn't have done that one thing better. Experience alters reality. You cannot progress if you don't screw up every now and then. In turn, you live, you learn.
