Weekly digest of things I find interesting, useful, funny, thought provoking or absurd... mixed with some wise ass short observations of my own.

“To know what one ought to do is certainly the hardest thing in life. ‘Doing’ is comparatively easy.”
~ Maria Mitchell

I had my second elbow surgery in 10 months on Thursday. Typing with a cast covering one hand is difficult so this will be shorter than normal.
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” ~ Pericles
“The sole life which a man can lose is that which he is living at the moment.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
“The greatest gift you can give a thoughtful person is to make them think.” ~ Unknown
”Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” ~ Francis Chan
The Nones are taking over the world
“The number of college students with no religious affiliation has tripled in the last 30 years, from 10 percent in 1986 to 31 percent in 2016, according to data from the CIRP Freshman Survey.”
Jeff's Fun on Elevators
This week someone tried to turn the elevator tables on me. A young man got on a floor after me and made uncomfortably long direct eye contact with me. Just when he thought he’d creeped me out I grinned and said very loudly, “I’ve got new socks on!”
You can’t beat me at my own game.
A few thoughts...
Don’t get upset if I ask you 
where something is in Target if you choose to wear a red shirt and khakis to shop.
I think it’s pretty cool how 
the Chinese made a language entirely out of tattoos.
You’ll never be as lazy as whoever named the fireplace.
Cooking is easy, but it’s not as easy as not cooking.
May you never have to do everything left handed (unless you’re left handed),
