I would like to address certain rumors.
Yes, one of the test monkeys escaped. Yes, that test monkey freed a test baboon. Yes, that test baboon freed a test orangutan. And yes, that test orangutan freed a control gorilla. None of these things are in dispute.
No, the freed test animals had not been granted enhanced intelligence and the gift of speech by genetic augmentation. They did not form a loose coalition of hyper-intelligent creatures hell bent on vengeance against the world of man and its inherently cruel nature. They did not, in their haste to escape, accidentally release a xenomorphic specimen which proceeded to stalk human and beast alike. (more…)Morning Stretches
If you’re like me, mornings are rough! I’ve found that a simple daily stretching routine helps me feel 110%. Here are some fun, easy and fun stretches to help you take on the day!
From a standing position, bend over and try to touch your toes. Freeze as soon as you feel any resistance. Hold until you think, “Close enough.”
Loosen your legs by using them to make the bed while you’re still in it. Stretch out your toes trying to tuck in the corners of your sheets with your feet. Once the bed is made, lie still for three to seven hours.
Roll your neck from side to side while staring out your window at the happy people starting their days. Stretch your mind wondering what they have that you don’t. (more…)
Style advice: make it seem like some of your hair doesn’t know what gravity is.
I type in the code: 9855. Instantly my phone and all of its apps are presented to me: unopened, untouched. I flirt with the idea of awakening my stocks app: How are the trades? Are they up or G forbid down?
I decide against it as my thumb, which has a mind of its own, is already swiping over to the second page. Yeah, I have a second page of apps. My brown eyes flutter over the Instagram icon; “But of course”, I whisper. It all seems so obvious now. (more…)
Fun fact: It takes 10,000 hours to master a task and also for my hair to dry.
Fun fact: the meaning of life is to have a series of obnoxious interpersonal clashes with your coworkers and then die.
The more stars you can see at night, the crappier the place you’re in.
