Proportional Experiences

I read this about motorcycle riding and I liked the concept of "proportional experience". It can (I imagine) apply to flying...or playing in a band...or tennis...or a relationship...
"One of the cool things about riding is that it's a proportional experience. The more passion we put into it, the richer the reward. It's entirely our call; therefore, we all get exactly what we want."


"Think of motivation and passion as going hand in hand.
If you lose passion for the things you feel are important, motivation never sticks around for very long.
Remind yourself everyday of the things that are important in your life."

~ Bob Greene

Apple stole my classic pickup lines!

"...some say I'm too fast"

"When you're ready to compromise, call me..."

From the latest 'Get a Mac' ad.

"You can't quit. I'll make your life a living hell."

"It already is."

Karma Compromisers

There are people in my life who I disagree with;

There are other people in my life who bug me;

And there are people in life who I think are Karma Compromisers - if you hang out with them you literally put yourself in harm's way as far as Karma, because they are that bad a person.

Dumb like a fox...

The Barber and the Kid

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?" The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"

The boy licked his ice cream cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!"

Think about it...

After a moment, one said to the other: "Do you smell fish?"
