P=Perspective

your perspective colors all your circumstances. are you basically an optimistic person? or is the world against you? do you "get out there" and "take the bull by the horns"? or do you sit back and wait for stuff to happen? do you actively investigate the meaning of life? after all, we've only got one life so we'd be wise to seek its ultimate answer.

C=Circumstances

these are things that are largely out of your control. where were born? who are your parents? are you naturally smart? or attractive? or wealthy?

E=Experience

your experience is your life.

more important than E=MC2 is C+P=E. more to follow...

it is truly ironic.

all in the span of a week. on Sunday Louisville brought home the Little League World Championship to a nation of ultra-patriotic Americans. while on Friday, the "big boys" are ready to quit playing America's Game because they're not making enough money. even the kids know better.

i feel it's safe to put a large portion of the blame on the players union. unions have essentially outlived their usefulness. they were important in the early stages of our nation's industrial revolution when there wasn't the widespread media coverage capable of pointing out any employer injustice, but now they simply encourage the status quo while stiffling free markets--the very agent of our nation's prosperity.

and not to make this unduely political, but yes, the Democrats are the big union backers. they know that they'll get guarenteed votes from the union bloc. because what else can a union worker do? go against the union?!?

just got my fantasy football draft results, or scrubs, as i should like to rename my team. after getting Peyton Manning in the first round, i proceeded to get none of the Top7 RBs or WRs. can you say, "screwg'd"? let's not all freak out yet, i've got madFFLskillz and can right the ship. just let me think... ("...which currently unknown WR is gonna break out this year and bring me those points i so desperately need... hmm...")
